In celebration of Wesak, the Buddha’s Awakening, today’s FBA Dharmabyte takes us right to the heart of the matter: What is Enlightenment? ‘ From the 1975 lecture by Sangharakshita titled “The Ideal of Human Enlightenment”, we are concisely and beautifully reminded of the three aspects of Awakening in the Buddhist tradition:
i. radiant, pure clear awareness entirely transcending duality; ii. an intense, overflowing love and compassion for all that lives; iii. an inexhaustible mental and spiritual energy, absolute spontaneity and creativity continuously bubbling up.
This talk is part of the series “Human Enlightenment”.
