Journey to the North West: A Modern Pilgrimage

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Thu, 6 Sep, 2018 - 12:00

In late July, a GFR Mitra completed a 5 day ‘modern pilgrimage’, walking over 120 miles from Adhisthana to the Liverpool Buddhist Centre, in central Liverpool.  Along the way, David Tyfield carried four heavy texts from the newly published Complete Works of Sangharakshita, and signed by Bhante himself at Adhisthana the day before setting off.  Inspired by the great fabled pilgrimage of the 7th Century Chinese monk Xuanzang, mythologized in the Monkey Tales of...

Dharmabyte: Reflecting on Old Age and Death

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Fri, 27 Jul, 2018 - 12:02

In this FBA Dharmabyte, ‘Reflecting on Old Age and Death’, Sangharakshita takes us through a personal ramble through the history of letters and letter writing.

It’s an education and a genuine, poignant pleasure to hear him evoke a vanishing art, pass on...

Our rich clay soil is drying out and cracks are opening up in the flower beds here and there. The roses are at their peak and the occasional plant hasn’t made it through the hot dry days.

In the early half of June the Adhisthana resident...

5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #5 Meditation for Transformation

Posted by Sadayasihi to Buddhist Centre Features on Thu, 14 Jun, 2018 - 16:51

The object of meditation is to transform oneself, not to have good meditations

Sangharakshita, Peace is a Fire

What Meditation Is and What It Isn’t
Often one of the first things one learns when one comes into contact with Buddhism - and sometimes even before that - is meditation. However, it is not always clear exactly what meditation is, or easy to articulate it! In the last 5 years of The Buddhist Centre Online there have...
