Triratna International Council - Day 7: Our Last Day! Reporting Out...

For her final conversation of the week Dassini welcomes Jnanadhara from the Republic of Ireland (via New Zealand), Parami from Scotland and Lokeshvara from England. The great gathering is winding down, a chance to reflect on the week and what we’re taking from it.

Parami and Lokeshvara are our two international Order Convenors and they share their thoughts on the work of the International Council from that perspective. And Jnanadhara evokes the great harmony of the meeting and the sense of building...

Posted by Centre Team to Triratna International Council on Sat, 23 Jun, 2018 - 16:50

Dassini welcomes Amritasiddhi and Nagaketu from India and Dharmashuri from the United States of America, with a focus on the Movement Strand (ie. Buddhist Centres) and working to make sure teaching and practice in our Buddhist community is supported and “joined up” internationally.

Triratna International Council - Day 5: Conversations Around Gender Diversity

Posted by Centre Team to Triratna International Council on Sat, 23 Jun, 2018 - 16:21

Day 5 saw us exploring the topic of gender diversity - who walks past our doors and how can we open up our Buddhist Centres to everyone? Dassini from Scotland is joined by Prajnasahaya from Germany and Prajnaketu from England to recap the day for us.

It’s worth noting up front that the Indian and Spanish Order members scheduled to appear in this video were unexpectedly unable to take part, so the very small panel isn’t itself diverse in terms of inclusion...

Telling Buddhist Stories to Underprivileged Mexican children

Posted by Nagapriya to Buddhist Action on Thu, 21 Jun, 2018 - 21:41

Here you can see a video, made by Diana Platas, of two mitras from Cuernavaca, Olga Cuellar and Blanca García, who have begun a project in which they visit an after school club for underprivileged Mexican children and tell them stories as well as introduce some meditation. The project has been running for several months now.

Sorry but so far we don´t have subtitles for the video.

5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #5 Meditation for Transformation

Posted by Sadayasihi to Buddhist Centre Features on Thu, 14 Jun, 2018 - 16:51

The object of meditation is to transform oneself, not to have good meditations

Sangharakshita, Peace is a Fire

What Meditation Is and What It Isn’t
Often one of the first things one learns when one comes into contact with Buddhism - and sometimes even before that - is meditation. However, it is not always clear exactly what meditation is, or easy to articulate it! In the last 5 years of The Buddhist Centre Online there have...
