Poetry and Devotion in Buddhism: the Sevenfold Puja

by Sangharakshita

The central problem of spiritual life is the mobilisation of our emotional energies, so that what we know can be put into practice. Energies may be blocked, wasted or too coarse, and the Buddhist puja takes us through a series of devotional moods to help liberate them.

This talk is part of the series Ritual and Devotion in Buddhism.
