Reverence as a Path

by Suvarnaprabha

What do we revere? Is reverence a Buddhist practice? When we bow, does it mean we are unworthy?

This talk explores "the problem of how to translate knowing into being"- the function and meaning of reverence in general and bowing in particular; introduces the Three Jewels of Buddhism and the Threefold Puja; discusses religion, the rational mind, and the dangers and fetters of reverence.

With quotations by Urgyen Sangharakshita, Lama Suyra Das, and Shunryu Suzuki.
