Padmasambhava Et Les Dieux Et Démons Du Tibet

By Free Buddhist Audio on Sat, 25 Sep, 2021 - 00:00
Selon la vie et la légende de Padmasambhava, il n'a réussi à implanter le bouddhisme au Tibet qu'en commençant par subjuguer les démons qui y régnaient. Mais que représentaient-ils ? Et qui sont les démons de notre temps ? Que faire avec ? Ujumani explore comment les démons du matérialisme (et sa cohorte, le consumérisme, le scepticisme, le cynisme et l'indifférence), du choix, et du narcissisme nous empêchent d'avancer, et comment, par notre pratique spirituelle, nous pouvons transformer leur énergie délétère en énergie au service de l'éveil.

FBA Podcast: The Best of Truths

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 18 Sep, 2021 - 06:00

The Four Noble Truths contain the whole of the Buddha’s teaching. They set out a clear and direct vision of the true nature of Reality.

With poetry and personal anecdote, he draws us into the immense depth and mystery behind these teachings and shows us a glimpse of what the Buddha was communicating 2,500 years ago. 

Given at the Dublin Buddhist Centre, January 2020.

FBA Podcast: The Dragon, The Tiger and The Wish-fulfilling Jewel

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 11 Sep, 2021 - 06:00

Do we reflect on the Bodhicitta? Is it optional, a mystical goal we can take or leave? How does it become a motivating force in our lives?

Sangharakshita has described the Bodhicitta as a myth or symbol that galvanises our energies, something that makes sense of our lives, something emotionally moving that stirs us on a deep level.
