'For the Benefit of All Beings'

by Maitreyabandhu (2022)

In this talk Maitreyabandhu investigates the fourth and the last of the acceptance verses with great warmth, humour and clarity. He explores its significance by drawing on the drama of the Sevenfold Puja, and the mystery and profundity of the Bodhisattva Ideal as expressed in the Diamond Sutra; that all beings need to be saved whilst realizing that there are no beings to be saved. A vision of truth and a culture of spiritual friendship are crucial for this vow to be lived out, and that is what the Triratna Buddhist Order has to offer.
