2018-12-01 Pilgrimage: Inner Journeys In Outer Spaces 1:58:21
"There are four places, the sight of which will arouse strong emotions in those with faith. Here the Tathagata was born… Here the Tathagata attained enlightenment… Here the Tathagata set in motion the Wheel of the Dharma... Here the Tathagata attained final Nirvana… And, the monk, the nun, the layman or laywoman who has faith should visit these places.” - The Buddha Before he died, the Buddha suggested that it would be of great benefit to those who are interested in his teachings to make a pilgrimage to the places associated with his life. While visiting the outer spaces associated with the historical Buddha, a pilgrimage allows us to make an inner journey enveloped by the profound Dhamma offered by the Buddha. As a pilgrimage leader and longtime teacher in the community of Thích Nhat Hanh, Shantum Seth will be sharing some of the teachings of the Buddha within the context of his Indian homeland.
