Cutting Away the Old

by Abhaya (2003)

Another strong talk by Abhaya. Swords - lots of swords - as he explores the deep significance of Manjughosha/Manjushri and the blade he uses to cut deep into ignorance and the suffering it leads us into. Zorro makes an appearance, and so does Gandalf! Then there's Plotinus, Michelangelo, and a whole host of cultural and artistic reference points to inspire us to pick up our subtle spiritual weapons and go fight some demons... Sparkling stuff in places, and pretty funny too.

Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2003

Please note that some small noise artefacts can be heard occasionally on this talk due to a poor original recording.
