Being with the Buddha

by Singhamati (2012)

Sangharakshita has recently re-emphasised Shakyamuni Buddha as the central focus of our devotion and practice, as it is through him we know of Enlightenment. This talk, given on the first day of a retreat, explores how to cultivate an attitude of Being with the Buddha as our teacher and guide. The Dhammapada is then introduced as a key Buddhist text and the first two verses are explored highlighting the centrality of mind in Buddhism.

This talk is part of the series Being with the Buddha.
