The Protectors of the Dharma

by Sangharakshita (1976)

Indian cosmology provides the mythological figures who are the chief actors in the sutra. Here we meet the Four Great Kings, who promise to protect the sutra. They symbolise the world's need for transcendental nourishment, and the Transcendental's 'need' for a channel of communication with the world.

Talk given in 1976.

This talk is part of the series Transformation of Life and World in the Sutra of Golden Light.
