June is Buddhist Action Month!

By Munisha on Thu, 27 Apr, 2017 - 14:50

Buddhist Action Month is only a month away! For 2017 the theme of this festival of Buddhist social action is ‘Connecting for Change’ - seeking to address the seemingly increasing polarisation, disharmony and divergence within many societies.

Of course the Triratna Buddhist Community is dedicated to the Bodhisattva Ideal all year round, but...

For UK BAM champs - 'The Great Get Together' - street party anyone?

I admit I love the title of the event - “The Great Get Together” - who wouldn’t want to join in! - Especially as it is in honour of Jo Cox this year, who, as it says below, “believed that we have more in common than divides us” - well that sums us up too, I should think. Here is the info from the website:  

UK Refugee Week (19-25 June ) is supporting the Great...

Re-posted from the BAM 2016 space:

Buddhist Action Month 2017 is three months away but here is something to literally prepare the ground for it:  a tree planting and meditation retreat, organised by Satyadasa from the LBC with Trees for Life in the Highlands - it sounds great!
