To All Life Is Dear - Verses From The Dhammapada 2

by Padmavajra (2012)

Returning like a favourite friend to the classic Dhammapada, Padmavajra gives another series of talks centred around groups of verses.

In this second talk, we turn to practice, or more rightly attitude. If we saw all life as equal and equally valuable how would that change how we behave. Of course this shift in perspective is rooted in the Metta Bhavana, finds poetic expression in Shantideva (amongst others) and can be seen most perfectly in the Buddhas vision of Humanity as a lotus pool. But dont let the imagery fool you, this is a practical and pragmatic talk.

Talk given at Padmaloka, Summer Retreat 2012.
