Refuge - A Film From 1972

Posted by candradasa to Triratna@50 on Thu, 22 Jun, 2017 - 18:15

Something for anyone who enjoyed ‘Gyproc and Flares - Sukhavati in the 1970s’

“Refuge” is a film made by Victress Hitchcock and Steven Burckhardt. Locations in and around London: Keffolds, Pundarika, Aryatara.

Here’s what Kamalashila said about the film back in 2013:

“This is how it was - and in many ways, is still. 1972, the year I discovered Triratna. Beautifully made with fascinating clips of such luminaries as Subhuti, Dhammadinna, Graham Sowter, Nagabodhi, Vajradaka and...

Can Triratna really help change this suffering world?

Terrorism, environmental degradation, the consumerist tide of distraction and dissatisfaction: sometimes the world can seem broken.

Triratna is entering its next 50 years. Can Triratna offer more people ways to stay sane in a confusing world: ways to connect, to grow and to give?

FutureDharma Fund believes it can. The only long term solution to suffering is enough movements like ours creating a wave of kindness and wisdom in the world. Only this will transform the forces of...

'Tiny homes' for San Francisco's homeless

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Sun, 18 Jun, 2017 - 23:49

It’s 50 years since San Francisco’s ‘Summer of Love’, and with Buddhist Action Month in full swing across many countries, it’s a great moment to celebrate American Order member Vimalamoksha and his Tiny Homes Project, making innovative small wooden mobile homes for those living on the streets of San Francisco. Video by Prasadachitta.

I was very moved by Vimalamoksha’s life intention to learn how to “give better” and his desire to share the simple lifestyle he has discovered for himself. I remember very well how many homeless people there were in San Francisco and how the status quo in the US seems so difficult to go against - but he has done so in a beautiful and peaceful way. Small is beautiful ! I rejoice in his generosity of spirit.

Triratna 50th anniversary celebrations

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Fri, 16 Jun, 2017 - 23:44

Clear Vision’s latest NewsByte video reports on some of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the founding of Triratna (as the FWBO) on 8th April 1967. 

We visit the joint northern English centres’ celebration at Sheffield Buddhist Centre, the events at Adhisthana and Dhanakosa (UK) and the mainland European celebrations held at Essen (Germany). We hear about the culture and zeitgeist of Britain in the late 1960s, in which the FWBO and WBO were created. And we hear from Ratnaguna...

This is the last post from the week’s retreat on Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata. Thank you for following! It’s been very satisfying to know that we’re reaching some more people around the world and sharing some glimpses and content from what’s happening at Adhisthana. 

You can find all of the posts and presentations from the week here.

We’ll be doing the same again from the Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana retreat later on in the year; and...

Willingly Inviting Ruin: Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata

Willingly Inviting Ruin: Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata

Posted by akasajoti to Adhisthana on Fri, 16 Jun, 2017 - 16:51

Lokeshvara speaks of the culmination of metta in Equanimity, and describes two ways of seeing Upekkha – as the outward radiation of goodwill that makes no distinction between living beings; and as the inner attitude of complete equanimity as life flows in, the attitude when abandoning the welcoming and rebelling of the worldly winds.

He expresses very personally, and insightfully, his own practice of developing this second aspect of equanimity, as a practice of ‘willingly inviting ruin”, referring to this poem by...

True wisdom never rests in itself very long, there is always this movement towards suffering through compassion.

Saddhaloka’s presentation on Metta and Wisdom, where he spoke of the unity of the dual aspects of the path – samata and vipassana, wisdom and compassion, merit and insight – and described how they are really a part of a single process, with reference to some stories of the Buddha’s life and the teachings of Atisha on sunyatakarunagarbha.

The Wise Have No Cause To Find Fault: Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata

Posted by akasajoti to Adhisthana on Tue, 13 Jun, 2017 - 21:07

The third presentation on the Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata retreat, held at Adhisthana in 2017, on the theme of Metta and Bodhicitta.

Parami presented Hri and Apatrapya, the two Lokapalas, unfolding a single line in the Karaniya Metta Sutta: “One should not pursue the slightest thing for which other wise men might censure them.

Both Hri and Apatrapya express a positive sense of remorse and regret, one in relation to our own inner ethical sensitivity, the other in relation to the...
