Event Title: Transforming Ignorance into Wisdom: the Brahmajala + Honeyball Suttas

Led by Subhuti + team

"The more that false views are genuinely and radically abandoned, the more there shines forth what is variously termed Insight, or Perfect Vision or Wisdom; and conversely the more Insight, or Perfect Vision, or Wisdom, shines forth, the more false views are abandoned."
Sangharakshita, The Ten Pillars

Wrong views lead to a distortion of human experience and, at best, prevent genuine spiritual aspiration achieving its full flowering, at worst they lead to all the evils of which human beings are capable. Until we have seen things directly as they are, we rely upon Right Views for our practice of the Dharma. We need to clear our minds of the wrong views that make up so much of our thought and attitudes, and at the same time, we must acquire the set of ideas about things that direct us back to how they really are, to live in harmony with ourselves and others and gain liberation from suffering.

Subhuti will use the Brahmajala and Honeyball Suttas to investigate the theme of Views; with discussion, exploration of ‘reaction practice’, meditation and devotional ritual.
