Telling Buddhist Stories to Underprivileged Mexican children

Posted by Nagapriya on Thu, 21 Jun, 2018 - 21:41

Here you can see a video, made by Diana Platas, of two mitras from Cuernavaca, Olga Cuellar and Blanca García, who have begun a project in which they visit an after school club for underprivileged Mexican children and tell them stories as well as introduce some meditation. The project has been running for several months now.

Sorry but so far we don´t have subtitles for the video.

Dr. Ambedkar was a great social reformer in India who converted to Buddhism with hundreds of thousands of his followers, in order to help them escape the crushing oppression of caste.

Given as part of Buddhist Action Month in 2018, in this talk Jnanadhara explores the life and legacy of Dr. Ambedkar, and especially what Buddhists in the West can learn from the peaceful revolution that Dr. Ambedkar instigated in India.

How Buddhist Action Month is Going...

Posted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 20 Jun, 2018 - 13:52

While Buddhist Action Month is no doubt a busy time for the many Centres and groups taking part, several have taken the time to keep us updated on how it’s been going for them.

From Padmasambhava’s arrival in Adelaide, Australia, to the Tree of Intentions in the North London Buddhist Centre to the colourful newsletter produced by the Mid Essex Centre aiming to raise awareness and funds for the homeless and refugees groups have been responding...

The Suffering of the Rohingya People Continues

Posted by Sadayasihi on Mon, 18 Jun, 2018 - 15:15

The Rohingya people need your money, urgently.

A new Buddhist global project has been set up to help the Rohingya people, a million of whom are living in the world’s biggest refugee camp, Bangladesh, as a result of Buddhist-led violence in Myanmar/Burma. After fleeing their burning villages, many of them now find themselves living in very difficult conditions facing monsoon rains.

Late in 2017 a number of senior Order members published strongly-worded statement pointing out...

5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #5 Meditation for Transformation

Posted by Sadayasihi on Thu, 14 Jun, 2018 - 16:51

The object of meditation is to transform oneself, not to have good meditations

Sangharakshita, Peace is a Fire

What Meditation Is and What It Isn’t
Often one of the first things one learns when one comes into contact with Buddhism - and sometimes even before that - is meditation. However, it is not always clear exactly what meditation is, or easy to articulate it! In the last 5 years of The Buddhist Centre Online there have...

World Meat Free Week 11-17 June 2018

World Meat Free Week 11-17 June 2018

Posted by mokshini on Mon, 11 Jun, 2018 - 07:41

Some of us may be choosing to go vegan for a week - the whole month - or longer; but you might have friends or family who find the idea of giving up meat quite off-putting and unsettling! 

This website allows you to calculate your impact of going meat free for a day or more a week - it also has lots of recipes and might be a helpful way in to give up animal products!

Thanks...

i think world should be meat free. I hate eating meat. killing innocent birds and animal and eat them is not humanity. then what is the difference in human and animal. animal also eat meat and human also doing the same. so there is no difference in human and animal. So be vegetarian and stay healthy.
