Die Angst Loslassen

Die Angst Loslassen

Tue, 2 Mar, 2021 - 21:08

Vom Buddha heißt es, er sei vollkommen furchtlos gewesen. Was bedeutet das für uns?

Wir alle erleben manchmal Angst. Und Angst hat ihre Vorteile! Sie kann uns aufrütteln und hilft uns Gefahren zu vermeiden. Aber Angst kann auch uns auch gefangen halten und lähmen. Sie kann uns daran hindern, das Leben so zu leben, wie wir es wollen. 

Die Welt ist manchmal ganz schön angsteinflößend. Wie können wir also selbst furchtlos werden?

Dies ist ein schöner Animationsfilm von Aryajit über Angst und wie wir ihr begegnen...

Maitriveer Nagarjuna: Reflections on Race and Caste

From Triratna India on Wed, 14 Oct, 2020 - 22:12

A special talk to mark the anniversary of Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar’s conversion to Buddhism on October 14th, 1956, along with hundreds of thousands of so-called ‘Untouchable’ people looking to free themselves from the terrors of the Hindu caste system. 

How do we respond to the atrocities associated with caste today? And the everyday prejudices visited systemically on people of colour around the world?

Maitriveer-Nagarjuna’s brilliant, passionate presentation looks at Dr. Ambedkar’s own response to such big, painful questions; connecting his work...

Courageous Conversations About Race - The Playlist

Mon, 7 Sep, 2020 - 14:52

A series of conversations amongst panels of Order members talking about race from their personal experience. It’s hoped that as many institutions are reflecting on systemic racism, we as a Buddhist community can reflect on how we can make Triratna more diverse, and our sanghas more reflective of the populations that live where some of our centers are situated.  

The next conversation will feature Order members of mixed culture and race. It will take place on September 26th at 11:00 PST | 13:00 México | 14:00 ...

Letting Go Of Fear

Letting Go Of Fear

Tue, 18 Aug, 2020 - 18:20

The Buddha was said to be completely fearless. What does that mean for us?

We all experience fear at times. And fear has its uses! It can spur us into action and help us avoid danger. But fear can also imprison us and paralyze us. It can stop us from leading the life we want. 

It’s a scary world sometimes. So how can we become fearless ourselves?

This is a beautiful animated film by Aryajit about how to face our fears and...
