BAM!  Thanks to Dave for talking to us this evening about fracking/anti-fracking and a film called The Bentley Effect https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CLnRD3neUFo
It stimulated questions and discussion and also turned us towards questions about what we can do locally and individually - buy local, alternative sources of power, cost v ethics, on-line activism. At the end of the session Dave suggested Lend With Care.  He told us that Lendwithcare.org is a revolutionary way to help people in the developing world to...

Cambridge Buddhist Centre’s chosen Buddhist Action Month theme this year is Connecting the world with love. We will be reaching out with metta to people in the world less fortunate than ourselves, with a spirit of celebrating diversity and common humanity across cultures.

Our focus will be on the current refugee crisis - with vast numbers of people displaced from their homes through warfare, famine, poverty and climate change, we need to find ways to respond in a positive and inclusive way.

We aim...

Building Sangha and supporting fellow Buddhists to step into and interact with the world is vital in this time of confusion. Promoting Buddhist values and principles through exemplification challenges cultural norms constructively and is a powerful practice. We know that our actions have consequences and although we may never see the results we can have confidence that we will make a difference.

We have arranged 6 mornings of meditation, talks and discussion to make more conscious the connections between our ethical commitment...

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...
