Gift of a Garden In a Wilderness

by Ananda

The fourth of a symposium of talks on Sangharakshita's poem The Four Gifts,for a celebration of the Triratna Buddhist Community's 50th anniversary, at Bristol Buddhist Centre, April 2017.

I come to you with four gifts.
The first gift is a lotus-flower.
Do you understand?
My second gift is a golden net.
Can you recognize it?
My third gift is a shepherds’ round-dance.
Do your feet know how to dance?
My fourth gift is a garden planted in a wilderness.
Could you work there?
I come to you with four gifts.
Dare you accept them?

This talk is part of the series The Four Gifts.
