Dear fellow practitioners,
When we arrived in Bodhgaya on the first day of our Pilgrimage last year, I felt that we should go direct to the Bodhi Tree and Maha Bodhi Temple to chant and meditate before even checking into the Hotel. After soaking up the rich atmosphere for several hours we then headed off to settle into our rooms and then re-grouped for a Dhamma discourse.
To truly appreciate the Enlightenment I think that it is important to give some thought to what actually came before this momentous event. In this talk we explore what an extraordinary Being the Maha Bodhisatta actually was… even before his Enlightenment. Siddhartha Gautama's renunciation and striving before his 'Victorious Spiritual Liberation' were truly inspiring and heroic.
I hope that you enjoy this epic story of dignified and determined struggle and success.
