Buddhist Action Month 2023: BAM!On Tue, 23 May, 2023 - 17:28
Buddhist Action Month (BAM) has been a feature at Triratna Centres over the past decade or so. And now we have news of BAM 2023 from the organising team at the Network of Buddhist Organizations.
What will you do for BAM 2023?
Perhaps you’ll take stock of the compassionate action that we are already doing. Perhaps you’ll ask how can we refine or supercharge those actions. Perhaps you’ll try something new.
We can use Buddhist Action Month to examine how it is to be a human in this world. How do we cause harm? Or collude with causing harm? How do we take compassion action? Or support the compassionate action of others?
There are lots of resources collected over previous years’ Buddhist Action Months to inspire you. Or view the BAM archives for ideas from past celebrations here on The Buddhist Centre Online.
BAM is a great opportunity to make a difference – you are encouraged and invited to take personal action, and to lead your community in taking collective compassion action.
BAM is about compassion action for others, and about compassion action for ourselves.
What does genuine self compassion look like? keeping active, learning new things, giving to others and mindful awareness. Get the leaflet “Five Ways to Good Mental Wellbeing and Buddhism” which can be freely shared.
BAM is about action: June might be a chance to kickstart a mid-year resolution! Let us know what you’re doing…it could be small or large, increasing your personal practice and encouraging others could be the start of a new wave of positive change rippling out into the world.
