The Decision to Teach

by Nagasiddhi (2021)

In this final talk from the ‘In the Footsteps of the Buddha’ retreat, Nagasiddhi engagingly describes the Buddha’s seismic awakening experience under the bodhi tree, as well as exploring the mythic images of the story.

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.
