Vessantara leads us on a journey to discover “Spiritual Receptivity” for this week’s FBA Podcast. This is the first in a thoroughly engaging set of talks and led meditations. From beginning to end, we get to experience the full flavor of the retreat that these segments were recorded from, held at Adhisthana in 2014. Vessantara deftly weaves Spiritual Receptivity together with the greater mandala of the Triratna System of Practice, bringing in aspects of each of the stages of the system and helping to put receptivity in the context of the spiritual life as a whole.
Talks given at Adhisthana, February 2014

This week’s FBA Podcast, is another brilliant talk from the European Combined Order Convention. In “Wow! Opening to Insight,” Viveka gives us much to reflect upon in our practice in a world that needs our presence. Are we ready to awaken to all sorts of astonishing things? What do you know from direct experience? What we see is pratitya-samutpada, which isn’t a view, but rather a description of how things are. In the lasagnas we see that all of our conditions are a proximate cause for insight arising – just be curious…and have a look!
We need to be more unconditionally loving as a community in order to support the arising of insight.
