Bodhisattvas work tirelessly and heroically to create a Buddhafield for the benefit of all beings. Padmavajra explores the opening verses of the Dhammapada and their far reaching implications including how we create not only our own happiness or suffering through our actions, but also how we create worlds, worlds of suffering or worlds conducive to human growth and even freedom.
In ‘Sources of Inspiration’, Paramananda talks to his guests about what gets their spiritual juices flowing and has helped them stay inspired in their rich, committed Dharma lives. Each week his guests bring something along to share - and a depth conversation begins…
These conversations were aired live and unrehearsed, so who knows what might emerge to delight or surprise us! Tune in and find out some of the things that keep experienced Buddhists going in these difficult times.
Come and join Buddhafield for our big winter event! A spacious, month-long journey through the Six Elements of earth, water, fire, air, space and consciousness. We will meet them in our daily lives, wherever we find ourselves. You can dip in as much or as little as you’d like.
There’s a wonderful programme of meditation; bodywork; dharma and other talks; workshops, poetry, music and dance. Regular emails to participants and a Facebook Event page.
What if our children are seen as aspects of our mind – this moment greed, this moment hatred. The Buddha advises us to ‘be with’ whatever arises, just allowing and then seeing what happens. Amaragita takes a look at Buddhist practice in the light of parenting.
