The London Buddhist - No. 4, Unfolding Lives (Winter 2015)

Posted by Candradasa on Mon, 20 Jul, 2015 - 17:46

The lotus is the image that the Buddha uses to describe the growth of human beings: the unfolding of life from unfavourable conditions. In this issue of the LBC’s excellent magazine and program some moving and culturally rich examples of this are brought to light - from Shraddhapuspa’s generous life after escape from the Nazis at the start of WWII, to Jayaka’s experience in prison as a young man via an examination of Fellini’s 8 And A...

Sangharakshita’s 90th’s birthday wish is that his legacy of written Dharma be secure and continue to reach people all over the world.

Our gift will be to publish Bhante’s collected works for the first time, including unpublished or ‘lost’ material, new prefaces and endnotes and a comprehensive index for easy exploration – all verified by Bhante...

Here is the complete archive of teaching from her Spring 2015 Rainy Season retreat in Bristol, UK. The theme was ‘Living In The Mandala’, looking at the Brahma Viharas in the context of the five Buddha mandala. Talks, readings, guided...

The London Buddhist - No. 3, Community Of The Spirit

Posted by Centre Team on Mon, 30 Mar, 2015 - 17:45

The London Buddhist Centre has a new summer program and a beautiful set of articles looking at the community of the heart and spirit…

“The bonds that exist between us are an inherent part of who we are, how we live and what we do. Nevertheless, the games of separation that we play, through force of habit, produce aversion and conflict, polarization and difference in our lives and the world. Individually and globally this is a cause...
