Aryaloka Computer Education, India

Posted by Sadayasihi to Community Highlights on Wed, 8 Aug, 2018 - 17:24

The Aryaloka Computer Education Project in India aims to fulfil the vision of Dr Ambedkar: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity in which everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential, regardless of their background. In line with that vision they offer computer education, personal development, English and self-defence training and particularly work with women as the education and job prospects of girls and women are low in India.  Two women, Priyal Kishor Ukey and Swati Shamrao Kawle, share how the Aryaloka Computer Education Project made...

Kalyanaloka: Buddhist and Tea Retreat Centre

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Wed, 8 Aug, 2018 - 16:36

A new retreat centre practicing in the context of the Triratna Buddhist Community was inaugurated in June during a summer solstice ritual.  Kalyanaloka, based in Brighton, held a special ritual, led by Subhadassi, chairperson of the nearby Brighton Buddhist Centre, which included a tea ceremony, a practice which is central to this retreat centre.

Another Lights in the Sky film is in being made.

It is about Sangharakshita and friendship. There are two distinct elements: 50% his life as a series of friendship stories, the narratives are his own words, read offscreen by an actor*; 50% documentary interviews with people in different relationships to him. 

* Uniformity of delivery plus great audio quality is good for intelligibility, intimacy and empathy.

If you can please support the production by going to http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/great-friendship

A great film begins when you leave the theatre

Posted by Development Team to European Chairs' Assembly on Wed, 8 Aug, 2018 - 14:10

Many thanks to Sanghadhara for creating this Dharma Doors mega-poster for the International Practice Week: Turning Arrows Into Flowers (22-29 September 2018)

You’ll see 2 options, one for A4 paper size, one for ‘Letter’ as used in the USA etc. The pdf has 8 pages, each with the front doors of 6 Triratna Centres, and which join together to form a lovely symbol of our international Sangha (see IPW overview picture).

To reduce dukkha, please bear in mind:

Posted by Satyalila to Fifty Years, Fifty Voices on Tue, 7 Aug, 2018 - 15:30

 I think it was the missing piece of the jigsaw, as it were.

Aryadhi’s Annals

In 1968 I was 6 years old, final year at infant school and struggling with the outside world as I experienced it through school.

In 1978 I was 16 and studying for ‘A’ levels, on the brink of adulthood but feeling an outsider, never really fitting in and very afraid.

In 1988 I was working in a classical music publishers in London and leading a life immersed in the arts – in and...
