Encountering the Existential Situation – A Sub-30 Seminar

Saturday 9th September 2023
10:00am - 1:00pm

Led by Special Guest Ksantikara

An In-Person Event

In the ancient Dhaniya Sutta we meet the farmer Dhaniya. He’s wealthy, has the ‘perfect partner’ and a comfortable home. He has economic stability, material security, a loving family and a successful business. Before long he comes face to face with the Buddha and finds himself in an exchange with the Enlightened individual in the midst of what he thinks of as his security.

Join Ksantikara to explore this dynamic exchange between the normal man and the Buddha. Over the morning we will investigate the ways in which we cover up our own existential situations, exploring our own relationships to accumulation and renunciation. Together we’ll start to discover how we can shape our lives to go beyond the mundane and begin to encounter Enlightenment.

Ksantikara is 30 and lives at Adhisthana, where he convenes the Triratna young people’s project across Europe. Before that, he lived and worked at the London Buddhist Centre for 5 years.

All levels of experience welcome. No need to book in advance. Just show up at 10am, or you can come from 9.30am to have coffee and croissants beforehand!

All our Sub-30 events are offered on a donation basis but you might consider making a donation to help us to continue to provide these kinds of events.
