La vie d’activité comparée avec la vie de calme

Posted by Ujumani to Espace Sangha de Paris on Mon, 15 Jan, 2018 - 14:07

Pour passer de 2017 à 2018, il y a eu au Centre bouddhiste trois jours de « retraite », ou plutôt de pratique intensive, sur le thème inspirant de « calme, simplicité et contentement ».

Mandalas: Mythic and Personal

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Bristol Buddhist Centre on Mon, 15 Jan, 2018 - 00:00
At the start of our year at Bristol Buddhist Centre on the system of practice, Karunavapi talks of Mandalas as patterns of the unenlightened and enlightened mind.

To appreciate the qualities of the Buddha, we can see them like light through a prism splitting into the colours of the five Buddhas of the Mandala.

Time change for monthly meditation

Posted by Vajranatha to metta for merida on Fri, 12 Jan, 2018 - 17:01

We had to make this change because the change from UK summer time meant the meditation at Venezuelan time was at a time that few people could go....

In this introductory course, Dh Narottama will teach the two most basic Buddhist meditation practices, Mindfulness of Breathing (Anapanasati) and the Cultivation of Loving Kindness (Metta Bhavana). These cold days are...
