A New Knowledge of Reality-Buddhism and Poetry

by Maitreyabandhu (2018)

Maitreyabandhu draws out the deeper meaning and finer detail of five different poems, each around the theme of death with the final poem focusing on spiritual rebirth.

By discussing the background of the poems and poets, the intricacies of their structure, and bringing in a Buddhist interpretation of the themes raised in the poems, Maitreyabandhu shows us the importance and profundity of poetry and how it can help us to explore Dharmic themes more deeply.

This evening took place at Padmaloka Retreat Centre during the System of Dharma Training retreat in December 2018.
