Critical Ecumenicalism: Sitting At the Feet of the Gurus with An Open Heart and Discerning Mind

by Vajratara (2021)

The Refuge Tree of the Triratna Buddhist Order poses certain questions: how are we to relate to the figures, particularly teachers fo the past? Do we go for refuge to them? How do we respond to them as individuals or to their teachings and practices? Do we go for refuge to every single book? Every single figure? What if we don’t feel any connection to them at all? Vajratara explores how we apply 'critical ecumenicalism' to the teachings and practices of the teachers of the past. Given on a weekend for Dharmacharinis at Adhisthana in December 2021.
