Dharmabytes from Free Buddhist Audio

Sep 16, 2019

This is one of a series of talks on the Therigatha, the songs or poems of the nuns at the time of the Buddha.

Gunasiddhi begins by saying that the songs are trying to communicate a level of spiritual experience to the hearer. The talk contains three themes: Going Forth, Friendship and Impermanence.

In this Dharmabyte we hear about the topic of Going forth which happened in a variety of ways for different reasons for these nuns. For us, we don't go forth in the same way, but there is a huge variety of ways in which we can go forth, in body, speech and mind.

From the talk, Songs of the Elder Sisters, given on a Sangha Retreat organized by the Glasgow Buddhist Centre, 2010.
