What is Enlightenment?

by Saccanama (2020)

Saccanama looks at the Third Noble Truth - the end of suffering. But do individualism and materialism affect even the way we see Enlightenment? Is Enlightenment an experience or should we look at it more in terms of growth, work and duty? And what is stream entry, the defining stage of the path? Finally, using an approach from Sangharakshita’s The Three Jewels, Saccanama looks at descriptions of the goal through negative, positive, paradoxical and symbolic languages.

This talk is part of the series Challenging Dharma for Challenging Times.
