Online Weekend Retreat: To Boldly Go...

By Sophie_WLBCPublicity on Sat, 29 May, 2021 - 11:36

‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.’

Marianne Williamson

Join Bodhilila and Prajnanita as we boldly explore the world of Amoghasiddhi, the archetypal Buddha of action and fearlessness. His name means, ‘Unobstructed Success’ and he is particularly associated with integration and the union of opposites.

FBA Podcast: The Bodhisattva Ideal In India

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 8 May, 2021 - 06:00

In this moving and rousing talk, Dhammachari Amoghasiddhi illustrates how the Dhamma can radically transform people’s lives, liberating them from a hellish existence, particularly in India.

Using the examples of his own life, as well as the lives of Bhante Sangharakshita, Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and others, he explains that if we want to live a meaningful life, we must open up to the suffering of others and do everything we can to help alleviate their suffering.

FBA Podcast: The Lord of the Midnight Sun

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 3 Apr, 2021 - 06:00

Vaddhaka can usually be relied on to give a pretty great talk - and this is no exception. Here we have a real treat - a terrific, energetic exploration of the green Buddha of the north: Amoghasiddhi (Dundubishvara), the Unobstructed One. This is kind of a multi-media affair - listen for the 13th Century Spanish processional music in honour of the Virgin, and a blast of Sibelius too! Marvellous.

Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, Winter Retreat, 2001.

Dharmabyte: Encountering the Depths

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 29 Mar, 2021 - 06:00

Evoking the mystery, power and courage of the deep-green Buddha Amoghasiddhi, Ksantikara extols us to be brave enough to encounter the depths of our being. And from the depths to gather the power to act, to move towards enlightenment and set ourselves free.
