This is Part 1 of the interview Gerry did with Ratnaguna (37 mins) as part of the series of Sangha Nights re: Going beyond Secular Mindfulness. (Part 2 is here.)

Vidyamala’s talk is based on her personal experience of using Mindfulness for the management of pain. She talks about the potential to move beyond becoming a happy healthy human being. What is the potential for the tens of thousands of people who have gone through the 8 week Mindfulness programme? How do you open the doorway to the other profound teachings of the Buddha?
This talk was given as part of a series of interviews and talks that Triratna Buddhist Community Highlands used to explore the notion of going beyond secular Mindfulness. The audience was the Sangha community and the local secular Mindfulness community.
Many thanks to Suryavamsa for his deeply thought provoking talk this week on the question of Buddhism – a philosophy or a religion?
