Our FBA Dharmabyte today is entitled Time Traveling to the Time of the Buddha. Amoghavajra takes us back 2,500 years to the Kingdom of Magadha in Northern India to the birth of a boy called Kassapa. He grows up happily and as he gets older he becomes less and less worldly. This is the beginning of the legendary tale of Kassapa, who becomes known as a superb meditator and was foremost among the bhikkus for practising austerities. From the talk and#8220;The Tale of Maha-Kassapaand#8221; given on retreat at Dhanakosa Buddhist Retreat Centre in Scotland.
