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”’.

Buddhafield Festival 2013: Sound+Vision

By Satyadarshin on Fri, 27 Sep, 2013 - 16:13The theme for the 2013 Buddhafield Festival, Fire in the Heart, focused on the Buddhist practice of loving-kindness.
