Faith, the Crisis of the Self and Self-Surrender

by Saccanama (2019)

Three myths of spiritual life; the crisis of the self - reason and will are no longer able to cope; Shinran’s life; what is self-power and other-power? Dharmakara becomes Amida - the central myth of the Pure Land schools; letting go of hakarai - reasoning and willing again! Shinran on shinjin and self-surrender.

Recorded at the Swedish Summer Retreat at Dharmagiri, July 2019.

This talk is part of the series ‘To Place the Heart Upon’ - Exploring Faith in Buddhism.
