The Preceptors’ College Chair Handover

By Amaradaya on Wed, 15 Jan, 2020 - 13:19

The annual international meeting of the Preceptors’ College took place from the 4th to the 14th November, 2019. It was Saddhaloka’s final meeting as Chair after almost five years of service, and half-way through the meeting he handed over to Ratnadharini, the incoming Chair, marking the transition with a ritual and rejoicings. Here we capture the handover ceremony and extracts from interviews with Saddhaloka and Ratnadharini.

One thing .....

By dharmalata on Mon, 5 Aug, 2019 - 01:30

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

By Padmakumara on Fri, 10 May, 2019 - 08:49

An introductory course held over five Thursday evenings (7.00-9.30pm) - Book here

There is an old English saying: 

“Sow a thought, reap an action. Sow an action, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny”.

The Buddha would have agreed with that. According to the Buddha, what we think, what we do with our minds, is the most crucial factor in how free and happy we become. This course will help us become more aware of the thoughts...

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...
