Event description

Description

The Bodhi Tree, Lotus flowers, The Vajracheddika, Vajras. These images from the Buddha's life hold great symbolic significance. Understanding their meaning can help us awaken the spiritual qualities they represent. Join Candradasa for an exploration of key images, symbols, and archetypes in the life story of the Buddha, as expressed in Ashvaghosas's Buddhacarita and other early suttas. We'll use meditation, discussion, poetry, and ritual to deeply engage with these images. Emphasis will be on the role of imagination in spiritual practice.

About the Teacher: Dh. Candradasa

Candradasa was ordained in 2001. He is from Scotland and has lived in New Hampshire for five years. His name means “Slave to the Moon,” explicitly referencing (amongst other things!) the lines about the Bodhicitta in Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara: “In devotion I offer myself as your slave…” and “It is the heart’s waxing moon, cooling the heat of passion.” He is the Director of Dharmachakra, which produces Free Buddhist Audio and the Triratna Buddhist Community website: thebuddhistcenter.com
