For the Attainment of Enlightenment

by Satyaraja

During the 2017 'What is the Order?' Going for Refuge retreat at Padmaloka, four Order members each gave a talk on one of the four vows taken when being ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order. The talks were given to men training for ordination and Order members.

In the third talk of the series Satyaraja speaks about the third orination vow, "for the attainment of Enlightenment, I accept this ordination". With his usual warmth and clarity he explores topics such as the impossibility of a personal liberation, the necessity to reflect on our motives and how we can practically relate to Enlightenment, the goal of the Buddhist life.
