About the Video: clear vision wrote: The Meditative Life, a talk by Prakasha, given at the Western Buddhist Order European Men's Convention at Padmaloka on 8 August 2009.
The theme of the Convention was Inner life, Outer life, which draws on two key descriptions of the Bodhisattva. One from Geshe Drom - disciple of Atisha - describes the Bodhisattva as manifesting sunyatakarunagarbha, the essence of voidness and compassion. The second is from the Ratnagotravibhaga, where the Bodhisattva is one who, "whilst dwelling in the stillness of the formless meditations is continually ablaze with external activity".
