One thing ….

One thing I’ve learnt is that humility leaves room for other possibilities … And I think this holds true in our formal practice of meditation and in the wider context of life.

Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation Course - 23rd May to 20th June

There is an old English saying:

Triratna Global Climate Emergency Initiative

By Christine on Tue, 29 Jan, 2019 - 06:44

Dear friends in the Dharma,

The Triratna Global Climate Emergency Initiative is now underway. If you are at all concerned about the state of things, then please read on!

The main plan is to work together in three broad ways:
1) Changing the institutions and practices of our movement to become more climate-friendly;
2) Encouraging ‘inner practices’ that can be of benefit, such as rituals, mediation etc.
3) Changing the world around us by taking bold steps...

Cérémonie pour Bhante

By Vassika on Thu, 1 Nov, 2018 - 09:10

Mardi soir, le 30 octobre, nous avons fait une cérémonie pour honorer Bhante au Centre bouddhiste de Paris.

Devant un autel fait pour représenter divers aspects de sa vie, nous avons médité, chanté des mantras et partagé nos sentiments et nos réflexions suite à son décès.
