Triratna Buddhist Community International Council - A High Degree of Commonality

By dhammarati on Thu, 19 Sep, 2019 - 17:06

“A community needs a high degree of commonality of practice to make progress together on the path.” Urgyen Sangharakshita

Since 2013 our Dharma community has put a lot of effort into exploring the basis for unity in a growing, international Buddhist movement that crosses language, cultural and geographical boundaries. Here’s a beautifully laid-out articulation of the story so far around this ongoing work.

Presented at the 2019 Triratna International Council.

Dharmabyte: The Dharma Door of Non-duality

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 19 Sep, 2019 - 14:00

The nature of ignorance and the nature of wisdom are the same. How do the Bodhisattvas enter the Dharma door of non-duality? Sangharakshita explains some of the dualities listed in the Vimalakirti Nirdesha Sutra, gives some examples of his own (with tips on how to transcend them), and concludes with Vimalakirti’s ‘thunder-like silence’.

From the talk entitled The Way of Non-Duality part of the series The Inconceivable Emancipation - Themes from the Vimalakirti Nirdesha, given in 1979.
