Not About Being Good - Creative Mind

Fri, 24 Jan, 2020 - 00:00
Buddhist ethics are not about conforming to a set of conventions, not about ‘being good’ in order to gain rewards. Instead, living ethically springs from the awareness that other people are no different from yourself. You can actively develop this awareness, through cultivating love, clarity and contentment, which can ultimately help us to come into greater harmony with all that lives. Jnanavaca, a senior Order member and President of the Cambridge Buddhist Centre, reflects on the nature of Buddhist ethics and the creative mind.

Sub35s: Precious Qualities - Energy

Wed, 18 Dec, 2019 - 00:00
In one of his best known teachings, the Buddha taught that there are five precious qualities that we need to nurture in order to realise our true potential. These are the qualities of faith, wisdom, energy, concentration and mindfulness. And whilst growth can never be linear or exactly the same for each person, these qualities give us a valuable road map as to what that unfoldment might look like for us. Jinamati explores the precious quality of energy or Virya.

As part of our Dharma Revolution Day, marking the 3rd anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s conversion to Buddhism along with hundreds of thousands of his followers, in Nagpur, India, Sanghanath interviews Padmasuri about her experiences. As a young English-born Order member, Padmasuri went to live in India during the 1980s. She was engaged in doing primary health care in the slums as well as teaching the Dharma especially to women. She got first-hand insight into ways in which Dr Ambedkar's conversion to Buddhism and the following Dharma Revolution impacted on people's lives.
