Buddhafield eBooks - Paramananda - On Retreat with Buddhafield

By Candradasa on Fri, 24 May, 2013 - 16:31As we mentioned yesterday, while we wait for some voices from the Buddhafield Green Earth Awakening Camp to filter through from the hills we’ll keep posting some talks that give a good sense of the distinct approach Buddhafield takes to practice. Here’s another of Lokabandhu’s excellent mini-eBooks featuring Paramananda on retreat at Buddhafield.

Paramananda is an excellent guide to meditation and to retreat. Get his books here.

Buddhafield eBooks - Akasati: Ecology, Buddhism and Buddhafield, An Introduction

By Candradasa on Thu, 23 May, 2013 - 19:27Well, as expected, the internet gods were (quite properly!) no match for the secret realm where Buddhafield’s Green Earth Awakening Camp is gathering for the weekend Dharma festivities. N.B. It’s not too late to join them!

So we’ll have to wait till everyone returns to post (we hope!) some of the sights and sounds of this new event in the Triratna calendar…

In the meantime, we’ll continue to give you a little bit of...

Buddhafield - A Conversation with Kamalashila

By Candradasa on Thu, 23 May, 2013 - 00:45
Kamalashila is the President of Buddhafield, a pioneering project which in the last twenty years has offered a radical revisiting of the Buddha’s life and practice for modern times, rooting their vision of that firmly in the elements out of doors.

Here he talks about his own history with Buddhafield since the mid ’90s, evoking the spirit of its great experiment and the people who have been undertaking it together as an extended community. He also...

Buddhafield Launch Green Earth Awakening - This Weekend!

By lokabandhu on Wed, 22 May, 2013 - 19:03
Today on Buddhafield Week we want to start focussing on the community and the land. Coming up over the next few days we have a new interview with Kamalashila as President, and we’re hoping to have some interviews and reports from the field too. But as you’ll hear the mobile coverage there is very poor indeed, so some of that might not come in till next week. In which case, it may well turn into a Buddhafield Two...

Dancing Buddhas - The Story of the Buddhafield Festival (Radio Edition)

By Candradasa on Mon, 20 May, 2013 - 17:36
This is the rather wonderful audio (a bit like a radio piece in its own right) from a great video by Daniel Dobbie of angelfish films telling the story of what it takes to put on the Buddhafield Festival. A great introduction…

Daniel says: “Dancing Buddhas is a 30 minute film about the team of people who help to build one of the UK’s most eco-friendly and inspiring Buddhist led festivals. We...

Padmavajra on the 'Buddhafield' in Buddhist Mahayana Tradition

By Candradasa on Sun, 19 May, 2013 - 18:59
If you wonder why Buddhafield is called that, we thought you might like a little bit of the deep Dharma behind the name!

Here are some extracts from Padmavajra’s classic talk series from 2004 on the Diamond Sutra in which he looks at the Buddhist Mahayana tradition of the creation of Buddhafields as part of the Bodhisattva’s activity.

These are taken from talks 3 and 8. Listen to the whole series
