A Newsbyte from Clearvision about a new Buddhist run business in Sheffield: a vegetarian cafe called Dāna cafe. Clear Vision spends a day with them hard at work and we hear about the setting up of the project and how the local Sangha played an important role in getting this project off the ground.
In the latest NewsByte, Clear Vision looks back at Buddhafield’s Green Earth Awakening festival, held 20th-24th September this year, when Buddhists of several traditions came together with non-Buddhists and activists and campaigners for a few days’ camping in the Blackdown Hills in Devon, UK.
As Buddhafield say on their website, “The Green Earth Awakening is a convergence of engaged Buddhism, community living, land skills, and creative responses [leading] towards social resilience.”
Carunalaka writes from Australia: “It’s a little-known fact that Vajradharini, from Pune, India, has been making kesas for the worldwide Triratna Buddhist Order for the past seven years.
Recently I suggested there were many people who would be delighted to ‘meet’ the woman who makes these items, given to members of the Order at their ordinations. I persuaded her to speak to camera - in English - even though she was very shy about doing so.
The artistic pile of bricks and Buddharupas that formed the main shrine for Adhisthana’s first four years has been replaced by a remarkable piece of new Buddhist design. In Clear Vision’s latest NewsByte video Yashodeva tells the story of its creation and dedication, on 19th August at the UK and Ireland Area Order weekend.
