9 December – Bhante Akaliko; Similes of the Buddha: Visualising the Dhamma
The Buddha employed a rich repertoire of similes in his teaching to convey complex concepts in simple, everyday terms that everyone could understand and remember easily.
Join Bhante Ak?liko for this visual Dhamma presentation and explore the inspiring imagery of the suttas, with similes that are profound, meaningful and still relatable even today. Discover how we can utilise these images in our meditation and daily life to help us improve our understanding of the Dhamma.
