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.

Thanks to Everyone Involved in the Funeral of Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita

Thanks to Everyone Involved in the Funeral of Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita

From Sangharakshita Memorial Space on Fri, 16 Nov, 2018 - 11:24

Dear friends,

It is almost a week since the funeral and Adhisthana is returning to normal, although of course it is a new normal. “Life is King” as Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita told us and Life goes on. The trees drop their leaves and work needs to be done. Sunday and Monday here saw community and volunteers taking down chairs, dismantling the shrine in the barn - will it ever be the same space? - and cleaning. Lots of cleaning,...

Oh, oui, un Grand Merci à tous !

From the little corner of the globe that is the Paris Triratna Centre, seeing Adhisthana through the internet during Bhante’s funerals it was obvious that things were done there with much love and care, attention to details and commimtment from all those who were taking part, be it by just being there or by organizing and supporting the day in all sorts of ways.

With much gratitude to each and all of you,
Ujumani, on behalf of all those who were gathered in Paris

Thanks to everyone - the many thousands - who tuned into our live stream on the day of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s funeral and burial. And to those who have been watching and re-watching since. It’s been moving to read the continuing flood of messages and appreciation from around the world. 

On the day we were faced with a number of unexpected (and some expected!) technical difficulties, and the live stream was effectively broken up across different channels, posts and platforms. Here then is...

thanks so much for all the dedication and work that went into this.  Hours and hours not just of filming but of editing, cutting and all the other onerous tasks that you all do with such positivity and love

Have just made a small donation to Dharmachakra (buddhistcentreonline) and to Clear Vision.  It’s not much but every little helps

jvalamalini's picture

Me too. If everyone who watched the video either live or later made a small donation, Clear Vision and TheBuddhistCentreOnline could be funded properly this year. And if we all made a tiny donation regularly every month, they’d be funded in future years too.

Many thanks for making this available

Sorry about the date mistake at the start! We’ll fix anon… 🤦🏻‍♂️ 🙂
