The Story of Devadatta: Lust for Power in the Buddha's Time
2016-04-28 The Story of Devadatta: Lust for Power in the Buddha's Time 52:51
James Baraz
Devadatta, the Buddha's cousin and brother-in-law, joined the Order in the early years with good intentions. Over time his jealousy and obsession with power turned him into the Buddha's main enemy. This dramatic story, reading like a Hollywood screenplay, gives us lessons in just what hunger for power can drive someone to do and the Buddha's wise responses to the various threats he faced.
