Rites of Passage

by Nagasiddhi (2021)

In this first talk from the ‘In the Footsteps of the Buddha’ retreat, Nagasiddhi invites us to experience the dharma imaginatively: through art and heart. He outlines the turning points or ‘rites of passage’ in the Buddha’s mythic life story that will be explored throughout the retreat.

Talk given online in April 2021.

***

This talk is one of a series given by Nagasiddhi at Rivendell Retreat Centre during the April 2021 home retreat ‘In the footsteps of the Buddha’ hosted by the Buddhist Centre Online. This magical week-long retreat explores the images, myths and symbols of the Buddha’s journey to awakening using dharma talks, meditation, storytelling, puppetry and art.
