Untangle your Mind: A Going Deeper Course on Buddhist Conditionality

By Ratnadeva on Fri, 18 Feb, 2022 - 16:43

Untangle your Mind: A Going Deeper Course on Buddhist Conditionality

By Ratnadeva on Fri, 18 Feb, 2022 - 16:43

All the Buddha’s teachings flow from his greatest discovery, the law of conditionality, sometimes described as ‘dependent origination’. The Four Noble Truths, the Wheel of Life, the Middle-way, Nirvana and the law of karma all follow from this central principle.

Over the six weeks of the course we will delve into the ramifications of dependent origination in order to penetrate this teaching that is ‘profound, hard to understand, peaceful and sublime’. We will explore how it can point the way towards ending...

The Spiral Path

By Sophie_WLBCPublicity on Sat, 29 May, 2021 - 11:48

This course runs over six Wednesdays 16 June to 21 July, 7-9pm

The Buddha has presented us with an inspiring path to liberation. The key stages on the journey are characterised by a progressive chain of positive mental states, such as bliss and serenity. Given the right conditions, each stage unfolds naturally from the previous, taking one closer to a realisation of how things really are and ultimately to liberation. 

Over the six weeks of this course we will explore this inspiring trajectory through...

Introducing 'I Hear Her Words'

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 16 Dec, 2020 - 16:00

We’re delighted to announce that in May we’ll be publishing I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism by Alice Collett.  

Core Buddhist doctrines and ethical formulations provide no justification for the notion that women are inferior to men. However, Buddhism was born and took root in ancient and medieval societies that held traditional views of women. In this way, social and cultural norms positioning women as inferior to men found their way into Buddhist tradition and some Buddhist texts. As...

Become One Person, Become No Person

By Ratnaprabha on Fri, 7 Aug, 2020 - 09:43

North London Buddhist Centre Budcast talk, 11:30, Saturday 8 August.

All the previous seven limbs of the Eightfold Path come together, and Perfect Samadhi is both supported by and supports them, integrating them into a holistic system of interconnectedness that dissolves clinging and yields a renunciation of the...
