Dhyana through the body - Online Event Led by Tejananda

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Wed, 26 Aug, 2020 - 17:47

Saturday 3rd - Sunday 4th October

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Mon, 17 Aug, 2020 - 14:45

This week Windhorse Publications is giving away A Guide to the Buddhas by Vessantara. 

Why does Buddhism refer to so many Buddhas? Who are they, and what can they tell us about ourselves? In this inspiring book we meet the Buddhas who form part of the rich symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism. Vessantara combines the power of storytelling with practical guidance and succeeds in bringing to life six Buddhas and their visualization practices (the historical Buddha, Śakyamuni, and the archetypal Buddhas of the...

Closing Down of Clear Vision

From Clear Vision Trust on Sun, 2 Aug, 2020 - 11:43

It is with sadness that the Trustees of Clear Vision announce its closure from September 2020. Over the past 35 years Clear Vision has been a vital part of the FWBO/Triratna Community. It has documented much of our history so far through countless video programmes, particularly FWBO Newsreels, Triratna Newsbytes, and filming Bhante’s talks, events and tours as well as many other talks by Order Members. We have also developed the beginnings of a vast photographic archive and...

Online Retreat: Tara - Fearless Love Lighting Up the World

From Taraloka Retreat Centre on Thu, 30 Jul, 2020 - 10:15

How can we hold sorrow and joy - in ourselves, others and the world?  We may hold one aspect more in the light, the other more in shadow, however we need to embrace both to be fully alive.  With Tara as our guide - seated in meditation, stepping out into the world, fearless, wise and full of compassion - we can develop our own budding faculties of love, delight, compassion, ease and equanimity.  These can then become much needed offerings...

ideas, language even the notion
one another
makes no sense.”
