16 points on Dharmic engagement with climate change, part 2

By Munisha on Wed, 27 May, 2015 - 00:38

Points 9-16 of the 16-point statement on climate change issued by the US Dharma Teachers’ Climate Collaborative in 2013.

“9. The interconnectedness of inner and outer, the individual and the collective (or institutional): Climate disruption provides an unprecedented opportunity to understand the roots of the problem—which relate to the ways our minds work and how those patterns become embedded in collective and collective/institutional practices and policies. This awareness can open the door to new ways of thinking and responding that will eventually...

2. Happiness stems from helping others: Our greatest personal happiness comes when...

Cardiff Buddhist Centre gears up for BAM with 2 taster events

By cremigio on Tue, 26 May, 2015 - 12:47

Part of the vision of the Cardiff Buddhist Centre is to be an active part of the local community.
