The Buddha's Teachings on Personal Practice and the Public Good with Gil Fronsdal and Diana Clark

The Buddha addressed the social, political, and economic challenges of his time through mythic stories containing lessons as relevant for us today as they were in his time.

During this day we will explore three discourses from the Long Discourses of the Buddha which discuss the role both government action and personal transformation have in the well-being of our society. In the background of our exploration will be exploring the uses of stories to convey spiritual teachings. The day will involve an interactive combination of lectures, discussion and creative engagement with the Kutadanta Sutta, the Cakkavatti-Sihanada Sutta, and the Agganna Sutta (Digha Nikaya 5, 26, and 27). These suttas can be found at http://tipitaka.wikia.com/wiki/Kutadanta_Sutta, http://tipitaka.wikia.com/wiki/Cakkavattisihanada_Sutta, and http://tipitaka.wikia.com/wiki/Agganna_Sutta.
