"Tread softly because you tread on my dreams." In this talk, Viryadevi gives her take on what is asked of us when we commit to creating a buddhaland - a collective spiritual life together. Drawing on two of the myths that have shaped the life and imagination of the Order - the 1,000 Armed Alalokitesvara and Chapter 1 of the Vimalakirti Nirdesa - she asks whether things going wrong, either on an individual or personal level, have a place in our collective imagination. She also suggests ways that our relationship to our founding bodhisattva, Sangharakshita, could become more mature.

Talk given at Glasgow Buddhist Centre, 2018.
