simply being and the mandala of uselessness

Friday, 24 October 2014 to Friday, 31 October 2014 2014

We’re very attached to the notion that our lives ‘should’ be useful, purposeful and meaningful. Yet ultimately these are just figments of the human mind. 

The ‘mandala of uselessness’ is simply being:  being what we really are, inseparable from nature itself which is undivided and ungraspable.  

‘You don’t have to justify your existence by doing things which are useful’- Sangharakshita
