Individuality: Self-Contained and Boundless (Online Order/Mitra event from Adhisthana)
Led by Ratnaguna and Saddhanandi
17-21 February

Am I an individual, or just part of the group?

No Toast, No Marmalade: Srimala in conversation with Maitreyabandhu

No Toast, No Marmalade: Srimala in conversation with Maitreyabandhu

From London Buddhist Centre on Wed, 30 Dec, 2020 - 16:08

Srimala has played a crucial part in the life of the Triratna Buddhist Order – as Public and Private Preceptor, as College Member, and as beloved friend to so many. What many people may not know about her is that for years now she has been writing poems about her life, about living at Maes Gwyn in Wales, about her family and friends, about her partner Subhuti, and about hedgehogs, toast and the lack of marmalade.

So we’re celebrating...

Introducing 'I Hear Her Words'

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 16 Dec, 2020 - 16:00

We’re delighted to announce that in May we’ll be publishing I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism by Alice Collett.  

Core Buddhist doctrines and ethical formulations provide no justification for the notion that women are inferior to men. However, Buddhism was born and took root in ancient and medieval societies that held traditional views of women. In this way, social and cultural norms positioning women as inferior to men found their way into Buddhist tradition and some Buddhist texts. As...
