Stepping into the Lineage of Sadhana
We’ll be hearing of the lineage of Sadhana within Triratna, emerging within Bhante’s spiritual life as he comes to grips with how to go forth from the ego. The day will allow time for us to personally explore what the place of Sadhana might be our lives, hear the personal experience of two or three dharma practitioners, and reflect on our relationship with devotion, beauty and the imagination.
