Aryaloka Celebrates Buddha Day

By Rijupatha on Mon, 12 May, 2014 - 19:55It was a truly festive evening at Aryaloka Buddhist Center during our Wesak (Buddha Day) celebration on Friday, May 9th. Amala led the night with a fantastic slideshow of images depicting the Buddha’s life, which were accompanied by storytelling and narration by several sangha members who each picked a unique episode to imaginatively bring to life. The Aryaloka sangha was fortunate to have the company of a number of students from the High Mowing school in Vermont...

Buddha Day Talks - Aryaloka Buddhist Center, New Hampshire, USA

By Rijupatha on Thu, 6 Jun, 2013 - 19:01
At our Buddha Day celebrations Dayalocana, Amala and Vidhuma gave great short talks (and answered questions!) on their relationship to the Buddha’s teaching and the ideal of Enlightenment.

Normally we’d upload these to Free Buddhist Audio but there were some recording glitches during Dayalocana’s and Amala’s talks, so we thought we’d post them all together here as part of the celebrations of Buddha Day around Triratna. They’re definitely listenable, just a bit grungy in parts!
