Buddhist Action Month is over ... long live Buddhist Action!

By mokshini on Fri, 1 Jul, 2016 - 09:16

Today is 1 July and I guess that means the end of Buddhist Action Month. I have been enormously inspired and delighted to read and hear of all the many actions and events that have been taking place in Triratna Groups and Centres around the world - sadhu to us all! 

Over the past month, many of us have been engaged in actions and sangha gatherings around the theme of ‘Buddhist Action’. It has been an opportunity to reflect on our interrelationship...

Buddhist Action in India

By mokshini on Sun, 26 Jun, 2016 - 21:54

Karunaprabha is a Triratna order member living in Pune, India. Here she talks about her life, about Dr Ambedkar, and about her work with the Green Tara Foundation which helps young girls and women in ten slum districts in Pune. She loves her work her, and says she has benefitted so much from contact with the Dharma in her life she really wants to give back - as she says, “we have compassion - but we must express it somewhere!”

Exeter & Devon sangha beach clean

By mokshini on Sat, 25 Jun, 2016 - 21:55

This post could be entitled ‘How to do something positive for the world and have a really good day at the same time’: the Exeter & Devon Triratna sangha met with members of other local Buddhist groups - Western Chan fellowship, Gaia House group and Diamond Way - at Dawlish Warren, a little seaside resort south of Exeter, and followed Neil, our beachcare officer, along the beach, away from the shops selling flip flops and ice cream.

Last but not least! How to become trainee bodhisattva, by Khemasuri

By mokshini on Sat, 25 Jun, 2016 - 20:39

For Buddhist Action Month 2016 we asked our friends from around the world to say what the Bodhisattva Ideal means to them…

Here’s Khemasuri, who suggests to the extent we practise the dharma we are all trainee bodhisattvas, and as part of that we’ll ’remember that all our actions have consequences and that we can always be agents for positive change”. In her talk she explores how we can be be positive agents for changing the world - she has some good quotes from Sangharakshita too,...

Chanting Challenge, Wills Cafe, and get involved!

By The Abhayaratna... on Fri, 24 Jun, 2016 - 11:00

I have recently come on board at the Abhayaratna Trust in the role of Supporter Care and Publicity, working alongside Taradakini in a small but lively team of two based in Scotland. I feel grateful to have this opportunity - a job that allows me to give something back to the Triratna community, and to the Order that sustains the Dharma and Sangha on which I thrive.

Taradakini and I have been having a lot of fun over the past two weeks...

Dayasara: On Buddhist Care Projects

By mokshini on Mon, 20 Jun, 2016 - 04:00

For Buddhist Action Month 2016 we asked our friends from around the world to say what the Bodhisattva Ideal means to them…

Dayasara’s talk at his local Buddhist Centre evokes the case of a friend in need of the support of his community. It’s a great way to introduce the idea of more formal Buddhist care projects as part of the fabric of our idea of Buddhist sangha - and an active, practical, everyday way to practise the Bodhisattva Path.
