BAM in Winter

Adelaide Sangha has been focusing on themes emphasised by George Monbiot in ‘Out of the wreckage’, such as knowing your values. We have shared actions that most of us already practice that take account of the wellbeing of other beings. For example, we looked at minimising plastic packaging, going 100% vegan, providing resources for refugee families and rewilding (or revegetating/replanting) land that has been given over to grazing.

Mindful Carers Project

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Wed, 20 Jun, 2018 - 15:58

Mindful Carers Limited is a very small company with a project as vast as the ocean - to bring more Buddhist values into long-term care (LTC). Co-Director, Dayasara has worked for many years in nursing and nurse education; his final paid job was in dementia care and he continues to volunteer in this field.  Dayasara would like to see a residential care home run on Buddhist principles, but the current social care funding situation makes that rather challenging to achieve, so...

From Padmasambhava’s arrival in Adelaide, Australia, to the Tree of Intentions in the North London Buddhist Centre to the colourful newsletter produced by the Mid Essex Centre aiming to raise awareness and funds for the homeless and refugees groups have been responding...

The Suffering of the Rohingya People Continues

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Mon, 18 Jun, 2018 - 15:15

The Rohingya people need your money, urgently.

A new Buddhist global project has been set up to help the Rohingya people, a million of whom are living in the world’s biggest refugee camp, Bangladesh, as a result of Buddhist-led violence in Myanmar/Burma. After fleeing their burning villages, many of them now find themselves living in very difficult conditions facing monsoon rains.
