Dear friends and gentle people,
Although retired from Carleton University and Pine Gate Sangha I had also created a Video Channel on YouTube. Students and friends have requested that in this shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic the videos of dharma talks and interviews would perhaps be useful. So here goes!
This week’s video rests on a terrific dharma from the Buddha. This was not given until his sangha matured.
ON BEING SPLENDID
The Buddha’s Four Clay Pots metaphor as a means to introduce Shambhala Warrior training. Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing, a mature teaching from the Buddha. Learning to Throw Away Strongly so that when you meet the Buddha on the road – you kill him. Kill the perceptions you hold about the Buddha. The raft is not the shore.
