Interreligious climate pilgrim from Oslo

Interreligious climate pilgrim from Oslo

Wed, 22 May, 2019 - 21:25

To inspire greater collaberation around climat action we organize in Oslo an Interreligious climat pilgrimage from Oslo to Fredrikstad to the South of Oslo. Search Facebook for @klimapilgrimsvandring.

We believe that all the various faith systems have in them both dogmas, texts and practices that aim at preserving the environment. If we can connect with the deeper values regarding the environment, in different spiritual networks, it will be easier to mobilize for common environmental causes. We also think that a shift to more...

What will you change to make a difference in our world?

Sun, 10 Jun, 2018 - 19:55

We have been talking about BAM for several weeks in our small sangha, starting with a planning sangha evening and then Manidhara lead a mantra evening on Padmasambhava.  We invited Amalaketu from Colchester for the day to inspire us with ecological and environmental issues and we all pledged our eco precepts.

 We decided we would run a stall on Deal Market every Saturday in June and our tag line became “What will you change to make a difference in our world?”...

Transform self and world this BAM with Karuna

Wed, 4 Apr, 2018 - 15:47

Hi there…
Sanghamani here!

For this year’s Buddhist Action Month, I’m looking for volunteers to join me for our telephone appeal, based in the Karuna office in North London. 

Karuna Appeals give us an opportunity to connect with others and ourselves, all while giving something back to the world. Using metta, sensitivity and awareness, we will work together to transform fear and resistance, exploring how we can remain open when faced with difference.

Our campaigns are perfect conditions to practice engaged Buddhism, a chance to...
