Are you ready for BAM?! YES!

Posted by Mokshini to Buddhist Action Month 2017 on Thu, 8 Jun, 2017 - 10:17

Thanks to Arthasiddhi and his choir at the Cambridge Buddhist Centre we now have our own Buddhist Action Month song! How excellent, and fun too, perhaps we can get friends in our situations to learn this song too :) 

Thank you to Arthasiddhi, choir members, Dayasara who had the idea, and Yashodaka!


Here are the words - written by Yashodaka, so you can sing a long:  

Help the world, forget yourself,

be a Bodhisattva,

this month of June, the month of June.

Generous hearts around the world,

we can make a difference, if...

International Council Newsletter March 2017 - PDF version

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...

Sangharakshita - The Poetry Interviews

Posted by Centre Team to Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 5 May, 2017 - 20:49

A series of ten personal interviews between Sangharakshita and Saddhanandi, reflecting on Sangharakshita’s own selections from his extensive body of poetry.

Each interview in this series begins with a lovely reading of the poem by Saddhanandi, and is followed by commentary from Sangharakshita on the verses - discussing his inspiration, the meanings behind the words, and what the poem has to say about spiritual life and his own personal history.

The running order of the interviews is...

Do the plastic challenge for BAM 2017

Posted by Mokshini to Buddhist Action Month 2017 on Thu, 4 May, 2017 - 09:52

The UK Marine Conservation Society have kindly laid on a Plastic Challenge just for us during Buddhist Action Month in June!! 

They are inviting people to go for a day, a week, a month without single-use plastic - I tried this last year, and was sobered how very hard it was to do; but it is real eye-opener. A great action to have a go at for BAM with some friends or your sangha, and it will certainly raise...

Jnanadakini - Bringing The Dharma To Latin America

Posted by candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Tue, 2 May, 2017 - 17:14

Jnanadakini was the first Mexican woman to be ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order and joins us to talk about her work bringing the Dharma to other Latin American women.

We hear about the recent ordination, broadcast live on The Buddhist Centre Online, and about Jnanadakini’s mythic connection to building sangha at home in Mexico, in Venezuela, and across the continent. Her quiet joy in this is apparent as she evokes the strength of practical faith in the face of...

Las Venezolanas (en Español)

Posted by parami to Buddhist Centre Features on Thu, 27 Apr, 2017 - 17:06

Una  conversación de Parami con un maravillosos grupo de mujeres Venezolanas Mitras de la Comunidad Budista Triratna, hablando de la importancia de la practica del Dharma en un país donde hay una enorme turbulencia política y económica.

Su respuesta es clara: en época de guerra lo que la gente necesita  es paz y compasión  y esto es precisamente lo que el dharma ofrece. Una evocación conmovedora y urgente desde una perspectiva vital.
