Rambles Around the Imagination 2 - the Need For Clarity and Ethics

by Subhuti (2010)

The second talk on Imagination at the LBC. In this talk Subhuti emphasises the importance of clarity; as expressed in terms of right view and particularly pratitya samutpada to help us avoid mis-interpreting our imaginative experiences and them leading us into the familiar territory of extremism and religious intolerance. The other touchstone for our experiences is that of natural human ethics. The sad example of 'sunyata war' within the history of Buddhism is a good example of how we need to always keep an ethical perspective on our experiences and how we relate to the world.
