A series of 3 discussions curated by Vimalasara where members of the Triratna Buddhist Order will be talking about race from their personal experience. Join Vimalasara and a number of panelists: Amaragita, Danadasa, Nandaraja, Padmadhara, Singhashri, Sujiva, Suryagupta, Viveka for the first conversation, with BIPOC/BAME Order Members
These conversations have been inspired by the recent uprisings against systemic and structural racism and the impact this has had on our Triratna Buddhist communities around the world. They are also a continuation of recent talks rooted in friendship between Viveka and Paramananda, and between Suryagupta and Subhuti (Part One can be found here and Part two here on Youtube)
This event is in association with the International Triratna BIPOC/BAME Teaching Kula and supported by Buddhafield Festival.
