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.

The Funeral and Burial of Urgyen Sangharakshita - Complete Live Stream

From Sangharakshita Memorial Space on Tue, 13 Nov, 2018 - 08:00

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

Sevenfold Puja for Bhante Sangharakshita

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.
