A Taste of Freedom

‘The three fetters – of habit, of superficiality, and of vagueness – are broken by means of Insight, that is, by means of knowledge and vision of things as they really are… by our becoming creative, committed, and clear. When Insight arises, one enters the Stream, the Stream that leads directly to Enlightenment… one becomes a true individual. And as a true individual, one can experience vimutti [… a pali term which translates as ‘release’, ’emancipation’, or `freedom’…], one can enjoy the taste of freedom.’

Urgyen Sangharakshita, The Taste of Freedom, 1979

These talks were given on an online Sub30s retreat from Adhisthana, in March 2021. Each talk covers one of the first three fetters.
