Tuesday Meditation: This Dewdrop World

From Online Meditators on Fri, 1 Feb, 2019 - 09:35

“This dewdrop world 
Is but a dewdrop world
And yet —”


- Kobayashi Issa

Our next series of online meditations will start on Tuesday 12th February at 4pm GMT /  5pm CET / 9.30pm IST / 11am EST / 8.00am PST for five weeks. We will be exploring the Four Mind-Turning reflections, which point to both the fleetingness of life and its preciousness, and remind us of the need to wholeheartedly turn our minds towards practising the Dharma.

Dharmabyte: An Encounter With Padmasambhava in Darjeeling

From Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 29 Nov, 2018 - 13:00

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is a recollection from Sangharakshita called An Encounter with Padmasambhava in Darjeeling. Padmasambhava, often known as the ‘Second Buddha’, is famous for converting the demons of Tibet. In this lecture we are given a brief biography of Padmasambhava and an outline of the progressive Nyingmapa practices attributed to him.

N.B. Poor original recording. From the talk Padmasambhava: Tantric Guru of Tibet, given in 1972.

50 Years, 50 Voices: Vijaya

From Fifty Years, Fifty Voices on Wed, 24 Oct, 2018 - 20:21

Who I am? I am just a little part of this process which is coming from the Buddha. … Disciple of disciple of disciple… Bhante ordained Srimala, Srimala ordained me… I am ordaining other people. I am just part of that process.

Sevenfold Puja for Bhante Sangharakshita

Sevenfold Puja for Bhante Sangharakshita

From Sangharakshita Memorial Space on Tue, 30 Oct, 2018 - 14:08

I thought I’d send you this on this so sad day. Mahamati asked me to write it for when Bhante died. I’ve sent it to Mahamati and Parami in case they want to use it on some occasion. I have re-wrtten it just now. Do use it or pass it on if you think that’s appropriate.

Sangharakshita's Life and Impact

From Sangharakshita Memorial Space on Wed, 31 Oct, 2018 - 14:10

A video I made yesterday. I aimed to summaries bhante’s life and his impact in 1 min. I failed, I did 2 mins, and I still failed. No time in space, no word or images can make justice to his life. Unmeasurable is the impact. I’m for ever grateful! I still cannot believe you’re gone.
