Buddhist Action Month 2019

Buddhist Action Month: (BAM!) is an annual festival of Buddhist social action. It started in Britain in 2012 and has since spread out across Europe and beyond. Social action is one of the manifestations of METTA, the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, which is embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practising this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community.

plastic-free supermarkets

By mokshini on Thu, 18 Jan, 2018 - 09:52

Dear friends, 
I’ve just signed a petition calling on UK supermarkets to go plastic-free, and it would mean a lot to me if you’d add your name too! 

From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating. 

UK supermarket Iceland has announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free. 

By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to...

Does your Centre or Group need meditation cushions or mats?

By mokshini on Mon, 16 Oct, 2017 - 08:27

Here is an update from Vajranatha from Merida in Venzuela, where he and the Sangha there, as well as the rest of the country, faces a very difficult situation. 

Do watch the 6 minute video and share it with the people in your sangha especially as an update to the first Metta for Merida video that was posted in August.

Metta for Merida - reminder!

By mokshini on Mon, 2 Oct, 2017 - 07:01

A little reminder that metta for Merida is still needed in bucket loads - if you haven’t done so already,  do consider following  the Metta for Merida page;  and suggest at your Buddhist Centre or Triratna Group that a metta bhavana meditation is dedicated to the sangha and all the population in Merida. And then do let the sangha in Merida know! Thank you. ...

Dear friends, Vajranatha, and the Triratna Sangha in Venezuela, needs our help! 

At the recent European chairs meeting Vajrnatha, the only order member in Venezuela, spoke movingly about the situation in Venezuela, and Merida, where he lives. 

In the video he says  ”I really need help…. what’s happening in Venezuela is a humanitarian crisis. I would like Triratna to be able to respond to this crisis.”

Please watch this video and share it with your sangha friends. What can we do to help the situation? Can...
