Lights in the Sky: Holy Lanka

Posted by Sadayasihi to Community Highlights on Mon, 26 Feb, 2018 - 16:12

Here is a recent short film by Suryaprabha and the Lights in the Sky about a trip in Sri Lanka in 2017.  Lights in the Sky is a Triratna Buddhist project producing documentary films since 1992.

Suryaprabha writes:

My trip to Sri Lanka January 2017 was a chance for me to try shooting 4k with a Sony AX100 camera bought second hand just days before the flight from London. So an experiment. Edited, and even sound edited, on FCP X. Altogether a new and, um, interesting experience.

My trip to Sri Lanka January 2017 was a chance for me to try shooting 4k with a Sony AX100 camera bought second hand just days before the flight from London. So an experiment. Edited, and even sound edited, on FCP X. Altogether a new and, um, interesting experience. More so than the holiday itself, perhaps, because I had noone to share the trip with, though I did enjoy a few days spent with Jinasena at his wonderful restaurant in...

Triratna International Council - Day 3: On Self and Other and the Structures that Allow Friendship to Flow

Posted by Centre Team to Triratna International Council on Sun, 18 Feb, 2018 - 16:06

On Day 3 of the 2018 International Council our guests review some great Dharma study and work that dives deeper into the whole area of transformative models of love and friendship. How do we practice to undermine our inherent tendencies to selfishness? And what can we set up so all our institutions serve the needs of the community and allow a genuine and enduring culture of friendship to flourish? 

Join Dassini to talk it all through with Khemadhamma and Ratnajyoti from Australia, and...
