Using an analogy of a rider on a horse, Vadanya notes that we often act as if our head (the rider) is the most important aspect of our experience and overlook our emotions and our...

5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #6 Engaged Buddhism

Posted by Sadayasihi to Buddhist Centre Features on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 17:38

It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act. There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of your own mind, that is, in terms of calming and eventually dispelling anger. This is action out of compassion. The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify the wrongs, if one is really concerned with benefiting others, one needs to be engaged, involved.” - The Dalai Lama

Gypsy Education in Hungary in Crisis

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 14:47

Hungarian gypsies, known as the Roma community, have a deep connection with the Dalits of India. Both communities are segregated, unable to get access to education or employment, and are treated like lesser humans.  Just like the Indian Dharma Revolution gave a voice to the Dalits and inspired a mass human rights movement, the Hungarian branch of the Triratna Community has developed the ‘Jai Bhim Network’.  The Dr Ambedkar High School in Miskolc, Northern Hungary, is run by the...

The New Dharma Revolution in Hungary

Posted by Jai Teather to FutureDharma on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 12:46

FutureDharma supporters have brought Roma Buddhists from Hungary together with those from Belgium, India and Holland. Metta Vihara Retreat Centre recently hosted a unique Bodhisattva Ideal retreat, connecting Sangha members from across the world.

Hungarian gypsies, known as the Roma community, have a deep connection with the Dalits of India. Both communities are segregated, unable to get access to education or employment, and are treated like lesser humans. Buddhist Romas are few and far between, isolated, and lacking a Sangha which makes...

After reading Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time and Carlo Rovelli’s Reality Is Not What It Seems, in this piece written over three nights towards the end of June 2018, Sangharakshita reflects on the connection between science and poetry, and their common language of insight, intuition, inspiration and imagination.

Using this board, we collected ideas about the world we wish to inhabit. These pieces of paper are stylised feathers, and during the month as they collected they turned into a fantastic feather cloak (kakahu) that embodies a world more in line with our values. What we wrote follows.

  • The world we envision for the future is one where the arts are paramount, myth and legend carry our inspiration above the material world; appreciation and gratitude are valued over ownership and rights
