In today’s FBA Dharmabyte, “Beauty as a Gateway to Wisdom” Srivati talks on creativity as a way of life, especially when that life is in flux and the ground of our being is shifting. Through her own poetry and reflections on writing and art, Srivati evokes an aesthetic path into the very heart of Reality.

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is from the talk “The Transitoriness of Life and the Certainty of Death” by Vajradarshini titled Sadness and Awakening.” This is a beautiful piece on the hardest of subjects. Using zen poetry and a happily wide-ranging series of quotations (from Tibetan lamas to Ezra Pound), Vajradarshini explores her own father’s death as a way to approach attitudes to death and dying.
