BAM 2019 - Fundraiser

By saradarshini on Tue, 9 Jul, 2019 - 03:29

This year at the WBC we have been unable to participate fully in BAM due to a lack of resources but I think it’s important that we as Buddhists think about the outward facing aspect of our practice, there can be a bit of a tendency to get really focussed inwards, either on ourselves or on the Wellington Sangha.

The BAM Handbook 2019 is now available.

Kaspalita Thompson from the NBO (Network of Buddhist Organisations) writes:

The handbook explains the theme: Climate Action - Personal Action. It suggests Buddhist ways of engaging with the theme and thinking about climate change, including avoiding polarisation. There are suggestions of personal and group actions, and other groups that you can join with.

Buddhist Action Month 2019

By gunabhadri on Thu, 21 Feb, 2019 - 19:38

Buddhist Action Month: (BAM!) is an annual festival of Buddhist social action. It started in Britain in 2012 and has since spread out across Europe and beyond. Social action is one of the manifestations of METTA, the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, which is embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practising this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community.

Beyond BAM 2018

By Christine on Fri, 3 Aug, 2018 - 21:03

BAM 2018 witnessed a variety of initiatives to make the world a better place. Let’s rejoice in our individual and collective capacities to transform and to change the world. Sadhu!!!

One tangible way we can maintain our ethical vigilance has been made possible by our friends at Ethical Consumer, who were so inspired by Buddhist Action Month that they have offered to extend the special BAM offer beyond June. Simply type...
