Entering the Rich + Strange World of the Vimalakirtinirdesa

The richness of the Vimalakirtinirdesa lies in the fact that it is a communication.  It is a communication between the great, but unnerving, friend Vimalakirti and the Noble Sangha.  It is a communication between the Buddha and the Bodhisattva youths.  It is a communication using profound philosophical doctrine, lavish images, poetry, magic, drama and comedy.  It is a communication with us in a way that challenges everything we have understood about Buddhism.

In this retreat we will also be entering into communication with Sangharakshita’s understanding of this important Mahayana text.  We will immerse ourselves in his lecture series from 1979, and the seminar from 1987, in the richness of the Vimalakirtinirdesa.
