Buddhafield Village (family-friendly) Retreats

Posted by Satyadarshin on Fri, 9 May, 2014 - 14:20This year our experiment in Buddhist community living is expanding! We’ll be creating a family-friendly community of practice on our land at Frog Mill on Dartmoor for most of August 2014.

How do we make life a meditation?! Find space and beauty in the midst of it all? As householders, parents, busy people - how do we practise the Buddha’s teachings in all parts of our everyday lives?

There are two new events on this gorgeous...

Subject : An earnest prayer for Financial Support for construction of Shanti  Niketan Bouddha Vihara at Tuichawng Village, Lunglei District, Mizoram, India.

Sir/Venerable,
                 In inviting the subject cited above, I, on behalf of the Buddhist Community of Tuichawng beg to state that,  Shanti Niketan Bouddha Vihara was established in the year 1968 by a local Managing Committee with a very temporary structure. The village Tuichawng is located in south west corner of Mizoram India near Indo-Bangladesh Border. Most of the villagers are CHAKMA in tribe and BUDDHIST by religion. About 480 families live at Tuichawng and surrounding villages. The total population is around 3500 who live on shifting cultivation. Due to inavailability of fertile land in the locality, they can not produce enough crops for their livelihood. So, they live a miserable life just hand to mouth. Being poor, our people can not contribute fund to develop the Buddhist monastery. During last twenty five years, it was anyhow constructed with sown timber structure with GCI sheet roofing in 1996. Now it has become very old. The villagers are trying to re-build it with concrete structure. An small amount has already been gathered which is not enough. It has become very difficult to gather more fund.             
             Therefore, I on behalf of the helpless Buddhist Community of this village would like to request your generous end to have a look into the matter sympathically to provide us financial support for the construction of Shanti Niketan Bouddha Vihara of this village. For which the act of your kindness, I shall remain ever grateful.
With a lot of Metta and regards,
Yours in Dhamma,                           
(SUDIP CHAKMA)  
Chairman 
Shanti Niketan Buddhist Temple,
Management Committee: Tuichawng,
Mizoram, India.

Help Replace the Buddhafield Café Tent

Help Replace the Buddhafield Café Tent

Posted by Satyadarshin on Wed, 22 Jan, 2014 - 11:38Join us at a Buddhafield Café Fundraiser in Bristol on Saturday January 25.

The tent has been to many festivals and seen many things. It’s housed and sheltered many people, been a safe and secure space holding the wide breadth of experience that working for Buddhafield encompasses. It’s got a bit battered in over 10 years of adventures; over the last couple of years holes have started appearing, and more and more spots of...

Buddhafield Festival 2013: Sound+Vision

Posted by Satyadarshin on Fri, 27 Sep, 2013 - 16:13The theme for the 2013 Buddhafield Festival, Fire in the Heart, focused on the Buddhist practice of loving-kindness. This can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us. Loving kindness is revolutionary because it has the power to radically change the way we experience ourselves and the world, helping us cultivate true happiness and genuine compassion for others. Loving-kindness is not weak or passive, but is the strength that comes from seeing the true nature of suffering...
