Dharmabyte: Beyond Ordinary Mind

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 11 Jan, 2021 - 06:46

Nagapriya talks via Zoom on Buddhist practice as a path towards the transcendence of our egocentric tendencies and motivations, which are the cause of our suffering, and the obstacles to our compassionate response to others. Transcendence is what is beyond our self clinging will, and by connecting with it we can begin to live our lives on the basis of a new logic. One motivated by the aspiration to benefit all beings through everything we do.

Dharmabyte: The Ultimate Treasure

By Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 28 Sep, 2020 - 14:00

A Bodhisattva is the ultimate treasure-seeker, searching for the Chintamani, the wish-fulfilling jewel, which gives all beings that which they truly desire.

But how does a Bodhisattva find this gem and what do they do once they have found it?  Sadayasihi explores the nature of compassion and how generosity can be both a means of expressing, as well as cultivating, compassion.
