A Strong Sense of Urgency (with translation in Hindi)

by Subhuti (2015)

From 1 - 8 February 2015 Subhuti led an International Order Retreat at Triratnas Three Jewels Centre in Bodhgaya. To prepare for each evenings meditation and puja under the Bodhi tree Subhuti offered a series of seven inspiring talks exploring the Buddhas experience in Bodh Gaya. The series is entitled Placing Ourselves at the Feet of the Buddha.

At the heart of these talks is a poem by Sangharakshita, Taking Refuge In The Buddha, which was written here in response to his own strong experience of Bodh Gaya.

In this final talk of the retreat, having been preparerd to sit at the feet of the Buddha, Subhuti draws our attention to something the Buddha himself spoke of as important. Namely, maintaining a strong sense of urgency. But how do we keep this alive to ensure a thriving practice?

This talk is part of the series Placing Ourselves at the Feet of the Buddha.
