BAM at the London Buddhist Centre with Transforming Self and World

June has been a particularly turbulent month in the city of London.  The violent attacks and tragic incidents the city has experienced have given us much to pause and reflect upon.  It can feel as though the forces that govern our country and the wider world base their values on greed, fear, hatred and misinformation; the very poisons we try to work against in Buddhist practice.  More than ever it seems critical for each and every one of us and...

Buddhist Action Month 2017 begins!

By Munisha on Thu, 1 Jun, 2017 - 08:45

June is Buddhist Action Month (BAM) and Triratna sanghas all over the world have been planning activities as part of this festival of Buddhist social action. Beginning in 2012 as a day (BAD!), this is a pan-Buddhist initiative from the UK’s Network of Buddhist Organisations. The theme this year is ‘Connecting for change’, which we’re connecting strongly with the Bodhisattva Ideal.

Buddhist Action Month at Aryaloka

By Shrijnana on Thu, 25 May, 2017 - 17:02

Bodhisattva activity in the 21st century

Buddhist Action Month (BAM) is a festival of Buddhist social action in many forms. It is an international festival, celebrated by may Triratna centers and other Buddhist groups, and it’s fueled by metta. Metta is the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, and it’s embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practicing this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community. Let’s turn that intention into action for BAM...

Using games, drama, art, storytelling and other techniques, 13 local muslim women developed language skills so they could discuss and write life stories. These stories were translated into textile artworks and exhibited...

June is Buddhist Action Month!

By Munisha on Thu, 27 Apr, 2017 - 14:50

Buddhist Action Month is only a month away! For 2017 the theme of this festival of Buddhist social action is ‘Connecting for Change’ - seeking to address the seemingly increasing polarisation, disharmony and divergence within many societies.

Having started in 2012 as an initiative of the UK’s Network of Buddhist Organisations BAM is now in its fifth year and increasingly international and pan-Buddhist. 

Of course the Triratna Buddhist Community is dedicated to the Bodhisattva Ideal all year round, but...

For UK BAM champs - 'The Great Get Together' - street party anyone?

By mokshini on Wed, 12 Apr, 2017 - 15:47

I admit I love the title of the event - “The Great Get Together” - who wouldn’t want to join in! - Especially as it is in honour of Jo Cox this year, who, as it says below, “believed that we have more in common than divides us” - well that sums us up too, I should think. Here is the info from the website:
