Here we have Akuppa exploring how someone practising the Dharma might respond if they found themselves in ‘Hell and Other Ordinary Places’ - including prison and public buses!

Buddhafield Festival video talk: Kulamitra on love

By lokabandhu on Mon, 9 Dec, 2013 - 11:01The latest video talk from the 2013 Buddhafield Festival features Kulamitra and a talk with the paradoxical title ‘Warm our Hearts - Let the Rain Come In!’. Exploring loving-kindness, he emphasises that developing it takes sustained effort at frequent intervals - but this, paradoxically, means spontaneously opening to everything around us as we discover and expand our capacity to love.

The talk was given in the Festival’s Dharma Parlour area on July 18 2013, as...

Buddhafield Festival video talk: 10 Ways to Misunderstand Buddhism. No. 6

By lokabandhu on Mon, 25 Nov, 2013 - 09:20The latest in our occasional series of video talks from the 2013 Buddhafield Festival features an engaging talk by Lokabandhu with the curious title ‘10 Ways to Misunderstand Buddhism, No. 6: “It’s all about Detachment”’.
