Why Paradise? Part 3 of 3 talks on Dante’s Divine Comedy

An MP3 version of this talk is at my podcast, Dante’s Divine Comedy, available via your feed.

Paradise. Destiny for a chosen few? Dismissed today by many. Or might it be the end for us all?

Dante tells us to follow closely in the richest, subtlest and most expansive part of the journey conveyed in the Divine Comedy. He shows us how to develop paradisal perception, the way to know this experience of reality now, and to become ready for it in the hereafter.

Paradise is when the deepest truths become clear, the most intimate participation with life is known as divine.

This is the third of three talks, originally hosted by the Fintry Trust.

The talk draws on Mark’s book, Dante’s Divine Comedy: A Guide for the Spiritual Journey.
