Buddhist Voices - Suryadhamma from Cambridge, Massachusetts

By Candradasa on Sun, 21 Sep, 2014 - 14:33
A fascinating set of tales from Suriyadhamma from his many years worth of Buddhist practice. Taking us from his first encounters with the writings of Alan Watts in the ’60s through his long discipleship with Chogyam Trungpa and eventual membership of the Triratna Buddhist Order itself. And a wonderful insight into practice for someone who has lost his sight and finds light and joy all around him, especially through meditation. Suriyadhamma’s is a compelling and encouraging voice.
