The Myth of Self-Discovery

by Maitreyabandhu (2020)

In this confessional talk, Maitreyabandhu reflects on his meditation history in the light of the myth of self discovery. He looks at the ‘front’ of this myth; its direct and experiential approach that tells us that liberation is possible for us right now, and at the ‘back’, that it can undermine the path (and therefore dispense with the need for sangha and changing the world), lead to claims of attainments, and result in demands of others to suspend their critical faculties in relation to ones experience.

Towards Insight: Three Myths, an online retreat led by Jnanavaca and Maitreyabandhu from Adhisthana.

This talk is part of the series Towards Insight: Three Myths .
