Abundance, Simplicity and Sharing

by Vessantara (2016)

In this talk Vessantara reflects on some of the themes of our Buddhist Action Month - 'Abundance in simplicity'.

If there isn’t one ‘Dharma lifestyle’ then what do all these different ways of living have in common, and how can they all be expressions of the Buddha’s teaching? What are the principles underlying them all, and what does all this mean for us in our 21st century world?
