You Can Help To Make Padmaloka Dharma Talks Even Better

By Sanghanistha on Fri, 10 Aug, 2018 - 12:57

So far, 2018 has been another year of excellent Dharma talks given at here Padmaloka. Some of the highlights have included Subhuti’s talks on our Bodhisattva Ideal retreatPadmavajra’s talks on our five-day Milarepa retreat, as well as Ratnaguna’s and Sraddhapa’s talks on our open retreat. The only thing that lets these talks down is the sound quality of their recordings, which could be much much better. Candradasa has very kindly put together a proposal about how we might...

A Myth For Our Times?!

By mokshini on Tue, 8 May, 2018 - 13:30

However innumerable beings are, I vow to deliver them;

However inexhaustible the passions are, I vow to extinguish them;

However immeasurable the teachings are, I vow to master them;

However incomparable the Buddha Truth is, I vow to attain it

Prajnaketu shares his thoughts for BAM 2018 and invites us all to discuss and explore how we can bring the myth of the Bodhisattva Ideal more into our lives in a practical way.

He writes - ”As we enter into Buddhist Action Month we consciously co-operate with the myth of the...
