Announcing our 'Stay at Home Sale' for April

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 1 Apr, 2020 - 17:00

There’s never been a better time to read! 
 
We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation. There is a lot to respond to, to think about and to process. Staying at home, you might well be spending more time online than ever. Perhaps your thoughts and emotions have taken on the pace and tone of newsfeeds and daily data: quick, scattered, and emotionally overwhelming.
 
In this month’s Stay at Home Sale we’ve gathered five books...

Dharmabytes: The Strength of Nothing Hidden

From Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 24 Feb, 2020 - 14:00

We often think that our best defense is to protect ourselves with a barrier between ourselves and the world. On the contrary, the dakini has the complete realization that in the end there is nothing to defend. In enlightenment all we were ever defending was a pattern of defensiveness, you realize there was nothing to defend.

From the talk entitled The Dakini & the Skull Garland by Subhadramati given at London Buddhist Centre, 2020.

Tantric Buddhism is concerned with the...

Dharmabyte: Death is Uncharted Territory

From Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 3 Feb, 2020 - 14:00

There is something profoundly natural and ordinary about death, and yet something quite mysterious. Where do we go? What actually happens? Who or what are we when alive? Nothing changed, from the Buddha’s point of view. Vimalavajri offers reflections on the ultimate unknown, the ultimate mystery, death, inspired by the glimpses of awakening depicted in the Mahaparinibbana Sutta.

Excerpted from the talk entitled The Way to the Beyond given at Bristol Buddhist Centre, 2016.

Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention 29-31 May 2020

From Triratna Young Buddhists on Thu, 6 Feb, 2020 - 15:06

Many of us feel like we are living in uncertain and fast-moving times. Separation and polarization seem to be the trend rather than coming-together and unity. The future looks more and more insecure. Yet, the Buddha taught that this has always been the case.

We as young Buddhist practitioners are curious to find out what perspective the Buddha’s teaching has on our world today.

Join us here in Berlin for the Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention, where we come together to create community, practice...

FBA Podcast: Working With Adversity

From Free Buddhist Audio on Sat, 11 Jan, 2020 - 14:00

When things go wrong in our life we can see them as an obstacle to an ideal spiritual life feel we should be leading. But there’s another way of looking at difficulties, and instead of trying to get rid of difficulties, we could be welcoming them as opportunities. 

Vajratara  draws on the Tibetan Mind Training tradition, as well as the Pali Suttas to examine how we can make adversity our teacher and the ground in which wisdom...

Recipe: Vegan Tempeh and Cranberry Pot Pie

From Vegan Buddhist! on Thu, 12 Dec, 2019 - 19:25

I split a weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share - a veg box! - with my husband and another friend. I love that it gives us local produce throughout the year, connects us to the landscape and the seasons where we live, and the farmers who provide our food, and is much more environmentally friendly than getting all our fruit & veg from the grocery store. 

In our last November share, we were given a surprise bag of...
