Oui, sauvé !

Ceux qui viennent au Centre en remontant la rue de Rochechouart auront sans doute vu, un jour ou l’autre, dans la vitrine du salon de beauté qui à deux pas en dessous du Centre jouxte le restaurant chinois, un pauvre Bouddha faisant bien involontairement la publicité, en vitrine, d’un produit ou d’un autre – sans doute signe du bonheur sans fin et de la zénitude (!) que sont, ...

Posted by Western Buddhist Review on Sat, 21 Jan, 2017 - 17:29

Gil Fronsdal, The Buddha Before Buddhism: Wisdom from the Early Teachings, Shambhala, Boulder, 2016, paperback £15, 180 pages.

reviewed by Dhivan Thomas Jones

Gil Fronsdal’s new book is a translation of and commentary on ‘The Chapter of the Eights’ (Aṭṭhakavagga), the fourth chapter of the Sutta-nipāta, itself a miscellaneous collection of Pāli Buddhist verses (including such classics as the Karaṇīya-metta sutta and the Ratana sutta). I was excited when I heard about this new translation, because The Chapter of the Eights is a fascinating...

The Wisdom of Words

Posted by London Buddhist Centre on Fri, 20 Jan, 2017 - 00:00
The spiritual community, the Sangha, is the ideal context in which we can practise the Dharma. It is also a force for good in the world and an ideal in its own right. But how is the Sangha sustained? Continuing our exploration of ‘The Four Sangharavastus’ (or Means of Unification of the Sangha). Jnanavaca launches the year with a keynote talk on the second of these, Kindly Speech. From Mon 16th January 2017.
