The Six Distinctive Emphases of the FWBO

by Sangharakshita

In his first public appearance since his eyesight began to deteriorate, Sangharakshita begins this new talk with reflections on his blindness, displaying remarkable equanimity and humour in the process. His main subjects, however, are six particular aspects of Buddhist life and practice which are given distinctive emphasis in the spiritual movement he has founded. The talk concludes with a strong evocation of one of these - spiritual friendship - when Sangharakshita recalls his own personal friendship with the great Tibetan Lama, Dhardo Rimpoche.

'N.B. This talk was previously released under the title, 'An Informal Talk at Padmaloka'.

Talk given in 2002.
