Join the LBC Team at Vajrasana

Posted by Singhamanas on Thu, 8 Jun, 2017 - 17:09

We’re looking for another Dharmachari or GFR Mitra to come and live and work with us at Vajrasana.

Vajrasana is a completely new Buddhist environment – it’s feels more like a temple.

Working at Vajrasana you’ll be fully part of the LBC Team and, as such, you’ll enjoy regular contact with the guys in Bethnal Green as well as good training, opportunities and a generous support package.

Do get in touch if you’re interested: jnanaruchi [at] lbc.org.uk; 07799 776 754...

Radical Inclusivity

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 4 May, 2017 - 00:00
This teaching was given at the London Buddhist Centre's Transforming Self and World group in April, 2017. The morning included a led meditation and enquiry, a main talk and discussion, and a closing meditation. What does Buddhism have to do with belonging? What does belonging have to do with Buddhism? We live in a pluralistic society, where many cultures coexist while maintaining their cultural differences. One of the main concerns of our day is how we continue to create a sense of belonging, amid so much difference. For Triratna, we might ask ourselves, how do we create spaces where all feel welcome, regardless of age, race, nationality, class, gender, sexual identity, physical ability and even religion? And as we deepen our commitment and involvement, how do we honour the unique experiences and gifts of each individual, while also seeking a ground of connection based on the Dharma? Sangharakshita has said: The Dharma should be communicated to as many people as possible and this means communicating the Dharma in as many different ways as possible...Avalokitesvara has a thousand hands, and each of the thousand hands holds a different object. Similarly, Order members of particular temperaments have different talents, aptitudes, and capacities, and in making their respective contributions to the life and work of the Order they should allow – you should allow – those talents, aptitudes, and capacities full scope. Join us in an exploration of what the Dharma might have to say about radical inclusivity.

Triratna@50 - For the Welfare of the World

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 10 Apr, 2017 - 00:00
The fire of peace has been ignited in the world by the Buddha. It burns brightly today in the Triratna Order and movement, and inspired by Sangharakshita’s vision will burn well into the future – but how do we fan the flames so that the heat of practice transforms the world?

Subhuti - For the Welfare of the World (Audio)

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:01

A great talk by Subhuti, live streamed around the world from London at the time, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Triratna Buddhist Community. 

The fire of peace has been ignited in the world by the Buddha. It burns brightly today in the Triratna Order and movement, and inspired by Sangharakshita’s vision will burn well into the future – but how do we fan the flames so that the heat of practice transforms the world?

Chaired by Subhadramati....
