Buddhism and Politics - A Series by Vajragupta

From Free Buddhist Audio on Sat, 24 Jul, 2021 - 15:53

Should Buddhist sanghas and Buddhist Centres get involved in politics or remain politically neutral? When political debate can be so fractious and polarised, how can Buddhists make a helpful contribution?

In this ambitious and challenging series, Vajragupta asks us to reflect on our political views and conditioning, so as to come to a deeper appreciation of what a Buddhist perspective might be.

How do you speak about sustainability as a buddhist?

Thu, 3 Jun, 2021 - 14:38


This evening we have the great delight to invite Dhammapītika from the Netherlands to a conversation with Gunaketu about how buddhists can speak up about sustainability.
How to cope, deal with and relate to climatchange? This invites us to reshape our deepest myths of creation and of being. Some find it exhilarating - others frightening. Entering the new era with openess and non rigidity is a skill that can be learned. Are you interested?

Dhammapītika is chair of the...
