This year’s Buddhist Action Month (BAM!) - happening around the world throughout June - is about to kick off. The theme is “For the Earth” - and here on the Dharma Toolkit we’ll be looking at the intersection between urgent human issues like climate change, economic inequality and social justice.

The Nucleus Of A New Society - Revisited

By Centre Team on Fri, 19 Aug, 2016 - 21:53

Revisiting Sangharakshita’s classic talk from the 1970s, four members of the Triratna Buddhist Order offer bold, challenging, perspectives of what it could be to engage anew with his radical vision of a new kind of society. Through the twin lenses of diversity and climate change, we hear questioning voices and affirming notions of community-based and personal Dharma practice in a suffering world. The invitation to examine our own perspectives and biases is both essential and potentially liberating, opening up...

Jnanadhara evokes a wonderful climate march in Dublin; Viveka reports on the San Francisco sangha looking together at racial bias; Vajrajyoti describes how a Buddhist recovery movement took...

Meeting The Needs Of The World

By Candradasa on Wed, 3 Aug, 2016 - 23:39

A strong set of short talks as befits the title to start us off on day two of the 2016 Triratna International Council. 

Parami introduces Akuppa challenging us to examine our responses to the possible realities of climate change; Viveka, asking us with great feeling to be curious about the possibilities for diversity amid the realities of deep-seated conditioning around racial bias; and Yashosagar inviting us to embrace the Buddha’s vision of the Dhamma as an adequate response to...
