Sangha Night: Love and Power - Two Trends in History
Community in a Divided World
As we locked-down for the first time, amidst the devastation and tragedy something else opened up.
The news flooded with unprecedented kindness, heroism, appreciation, and collaboration. And then the opening closed.
Division now seems to be more firmly established. To fight only tends to deepen it. However, we need to do something and together we can. What opened up between us in the first lockdown did so naturally between us. With effort, we can create the conditions for it to open again.
Come and discover the possibilities of creating community now and explore how it is a much-needed influence in our divided world.
This evening Kulapriya will be revisiting Sangharakshita's 1978 talk 'A Vision of History', reflecting on the significance of the spiritual community throughout human history and these two trends of love and power.
You can listen to the original talk by Sangharakshita here.
