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.

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...

He writes: “Samadhi is a higher state of consciousness that is not fettered by concepts, ideas or language. 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...

People that do have homes often live with many family members sharing a small space. There is mass migration with migrant workers returning to their home villages. The sangha in India are responding to the needs...
