Buddhist Action Month at Aryaloka

Bodhisattva activity in the 21st century

Buddhist Action Month (BAM) is a festival of Buddhist social action in many forms. It is an international festival, celebrated by may Triratna centers and other Buddhist groups, and it’s fueled by metta. Metta is the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, and it’s embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practicing this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community. Let’s turn that intention into action for BAM...

Cambridge is Connecting the world with love (for BAM)

Posted by jezpete to Buddhist Action Month 2017 on Thu, 25 May, 2017 - 11:28

Cambridge Buddhist Centre’s chosen Buddhist Action Month theme this year is Connecting the world with love. We will be reaching out with metta to people in the world less fortunate than ourselves, with a spirit of celebrating diversity and common humanity across cultures.

We aim...

Personal Practice Diaries - A Personal Response to the Bombing in Manchester, UK

Posted by charlotte-l to Triratna Young Buddhists on Thu, 25 May, 2017 - 00:14

Working for The Buddhist Centre Online continues to challenge me in new ways. This week, trying to find a way of responding online, or not, to the awful suicide bombing in Manchester. And I feel completely inadequate to make that decision.

For sangha members around the world who aren’t aware, just have a quick look online to find out what has happened, although details are still coming out. I only had a few minutes to look at a newspaper today, but I have been most...

Posted by dhammamegha to Triratna International Council on Wed, 24 May, 2017 - 10:43

Hello all

Here you’ll find updates on the International Council’s consultations, new initiatives on Access and Inclusion, on Divesting from Fossil Fuels, and an update on the Sikkha project.

You’ll also find out more about how the International Council works and who is on it, as well as...

What is a Puja?

Posted by dharmalata to Coogee Buddhist Group on Wed, 24 May, 2017 - 03:36


A puja in my Buddhist tradition is a ceremony that includes reflection, chanting and offerings that deepen appreciation of The Buddha and his teachings.
