Buddhism and Social Justice

From London Buddhist Centre on Tue, 13 Oct, 2020 - 16:05

Wednesday 14th October, 7pm-8.30pm UK time

Can Buddhism change society? We’ll spend the evening exploring that question, hearing from four ordained Buddhists on what they understand social justice to mean.

In a symposium of short talks, speakers will draw on the social and political revolution of the Indian Dalit Buddhist movement and why it is so relevant to us, here in the West. We’d love for you to join in the conversation.

ICin5 No.5 - Day Three, Social Engagement and Harmony

From Triratna International Council on Tue, 1 Sep, 2020 - 22:09

We’re in Australia and New Zealand for Day 3 of the International Council online! And today we hear about conversations around social engagement as Buddhists: the passion and the potential pitfalls, especially when we prize harmony as a deep value in community.

- Revisiting some working principles from last year from which to engage with issues: 
exemplification, renunciation, awareness, right effort, the precepts, right livelihood, spiritual friendship, ethical speech, conditionality, karma, active compassion.
- Discussing ways we can cultivate non-polarisation in...

ICin5 No.3 - Day One, The Blue Sky and Priorities After Covid

From Triratna International Council on Mon, 31 Aug, 2020 - 02:40

The first full day of the online International Council. The blue sky is behind us and all around, and we’re with Aryadrishti and Sravaniya from Canada and the USA. In some ways a sobering, if hopeful, take on what a Dharma community has to offer when faced with deep, systemic suffering.

- The Bodhichitta practice as the backdrop to sorrow.
- What Triratna can do to respond in hard times.
- IC priorities in the wake of Covid-19.
