European Buddhists gather at Adhisthana

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Sat, 20 Oct, 2018 - 21:51

The last weekend in September saw the annual gathering of the European Buddhist Union (EBU), this year hosted by Triratna at Adhisthana, followed as always by the annual meeting of the Buddhist Teachers in Europe (BTE).

For the EBU meeting, around 30 people from national Buddhist unions and individual Buddhist traditions across Europe, and including some young Buddhist guests, spent three days together, concentrating on two topics: 1) Young Buddhists and 2) preventing abuse in...

Buddhist Teachers in Europe at Adhisthana

Posted by Munisha to Triratna In The Buddhist World on Sat, 20 Oct, 2018 - 21:24

This year’s meeting of the Buddhist Teachers in Europe (BTE) was hosted by Triratna at Adhisthana at the very start of October. Following straight on from the European Buddhist Union meeting it was much smaller: eight to 10 people attended each day, including Sangharakshita. BTE is a chance for informal discussion on topics of current common interest, this year on the topic of ‘Buddhists in Dialogue with European Societies’, taken from the title of a conference held in Berlin in...

European Buddhist Union weekend at Adhisthana

Posted by Munisha to Triratna In The Buddhist World on Sat, 20 Oct, 2018 - 18:58

The last weekend in September saw the annual gathering of the European Buddhist Union (EBU), this year hosted by Triratna at Adhisthana. This was followed as always by the annual meeting of the group, Buddhist Teachers in Europe (BTE). Both were enormously successful meetings in terms of the working atmosphere and topics, and people’s enjoyment of each other and their surroundings. (I attend both each year, in my capacity as Triratna’s Liaison officer, looking after...

Triratna Safeguarding talk at the German Buddhist Union

Posted by Munisha to Triratna In The Buddhist World on Sat, 20 Oct, 2018 - 18:10

I’d like to report briefly on a visit to the German Buddhist Union (DBU) annual meeting in April this year – with apologies for the considerable lateness of this report.

The Diamond Way Sangha, at their wonderful lakeside Europe Centre in Bavaria, were wonderful hosts to around 50 representatives from various Buddhist traditions in Germany, including Triratna’s Vidyagita and Karunada. Their theme being ethics in sanghas, I was invited to address them on the topic...

Tuesday Meditation: New Time and Place

Posted by Sadayasihi to Online Meditators on Fri, 19 Oct, 2018 - 11:40

Online meditations will be resuming on Tuesday 13th November.  

For a series of six Tuesdays we will be looking at how we can go deeper in meditation. Starting with the practices of the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Metta Bhavana we will be exploring how we can work with hindrances that arise and become more absorbed - and, ultimately, transform our experience so that it is in line with Reality!

A couple of practical things.  Firstly, the time...

Practice Day with Punyamati

Posted by Rich Gifford to Deal Buddhist Group on Fri, 19 Oct, 2018 - 04:13

Practice Day with Punyamati on Sunday 11th November 10am - 4pm Sholden Village hall

Prajñā or paññā in Buddhism is wisdom, understanding, discernment, insight, or cognitive acuity. It is one of three divisions of the Noble Eightfold Path. Such wisdom is understood to exist in the universal flux of being and can be intuitively experienced through meditation. Today we will explore our deepening Prajñā with Punyamati, who is kindly visiting us from the Croydon Buddhist Centre.

Please come and enjoy this day of meditation, discussion, ritual and friendship. It’s the...
