In his third talk Subhuti recapitulates the previous material about the 5 niyamas as the patterns of reality.
The main body of the talk his how the Buddhist tradition responds to worldly power; in the time of the Buddha it was kings, now it is politicians. The Buddha had a lot of guidelines for what makes a good king which largely relate to todays environment. That politicians be just, promote equality, be honest, support the living of the spiritual life and so on.
Subhuti then speaks more directly to how, we as Buddhists, should relate to politics. He particularly emphasises the -Buddhist voice' and encourages the members of the LBC Sangha to engage with local politicians and ask them questions about their policies.
