Bodhisattva activity in the 21st century
Buddhist Action Month (BAM) is a festival of Buddhist social action in many forms. It is an international festival, celebrated by may Triratna centers and other Buddhist groups, and it’s fueled by metta. Metta is the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, and it’s embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practicing this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community. Let’s turn that intention into action for BAM ~ Buddhist Action Month ~ in June 2017.
