Transcending the Human Predicament

by Sangharakshita (1971)

In investigating various symbolic elements in the Parable of the Burning House, we are reminded of the importance of responding to 'the call of the Divine'. The general significance of the parable is then discussed under the headings of escapism, universalism and sectarianism.

This talk is part of the series Parables, Myths and Symbols of Mahayana Buddhism in the White Lotus Sutra.
