A New Series of Talks - 'Cherish the Doctrine, Live United, Radiate Love'

In this series of talks given during a Going for Refuge retreat this spring at Padmaloka, Padmasagara, Dharmadipa, and Vidyadaka explores the motto of Sangharakshita’s teacher and friend Dhardo Rimpoche: 'Cherish the Doctrine, Live United, Radiate Love'

The series is introduced with a biographical sketch of Dhardo Rimpoche’s life, told primarily through the eyes of our own teacher - Urgyen Sangharakshita - who came to regard Dhardo Rimpoche as a 'living bodhisattva'. We then hear each speaker explore the motto through stories from the whole of the Buddhist tradition, stretching from incidents in the Pali Canon, to the bedazzling beauty of the Mahayana Pure Lands, to the uncompromising teachings of the Mind Training traditions, and to the profound mysteries of Shunyata. Through this rich and inspiring journey, we become clearer about how the mottos are alive within our own Order and its system of practice. We also receive direct tips, precepts and practices for how to live the motto out in our immediate daily life.
