Kamalashila explores the centrality of mindfulness to the Buddhist path. He discusses the concept of intoxication, with reference to the 5th Precept and the Sutra of Golden Light. Kamalashila then considers the four foundations of mindfulness from the Satipatthana Sutta and concludes that mindfulness is the basis of metta and allows us to embrace the realm of truth and beauty.
This talk was given at Croydon Buddhist Centre, 1996. This talk was made available by the Croydon Digital Archive Project, turning crumbling cassette tape recordings into digital format.
