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...

BAM in the Dublin Buddhist Centre - a short report

Mon, 26 Jun, 2017 - 19:10

It was a busy month in Dublin!

In addition to our BAM programme we asked our Sangha to sign up to one of three challenges: going vegan for the month, exploring how to divest from fossil fuels or taking the plastic challenge.  Quite a few people took up one (or even two!) of these challenges, with the plastic challenge being by far the most popular.  I look forward to hearing how people got on with their pledges for the month.

Here is a...

‘We have far more in common than that which divides us’ (Jo Cox)

It was a sunny Saturday morning at Taraloka when Maitrisiddhi and I loaded up the community car to go to the street meditation in Shrewsbury.  When we arrived on Pride Hill we were met by enthusiastic members of the Shrewsbury Sangha, ready to help us unload and get started.  We set up meditation cushions and chairs in the heart of the pedestrianised shopping area, and waited for the band...
