By parami on Fri, 23 Oct, 2015 - 15:53

Parami again from “Oceania”! She’s in conversation here with her friend Maitripala who has been living in Europe for a year but is now back home and engaging with women seeking ordination into the Triratna Buddhist Order.

By parami on Fri, 23 Oct, 2015 - 01:12

Parami is back, reporting from  Australasia - or is it Oceania? - talking with two friends who have spent much of their adult lives reflecting on - and acting upon - climate change as an integral aspect of their Buddhist practice. A fascinating, sometimes sobering, but realistically positive conversation about what environmental issues have to do with the Dharma - and what we can do to get involved…

Topics covered include ‘transition towns’; Al Gore’s initiative; thinking about our kids; how to...

The Adhisthana community 'at home'

By akasajoti on Mon, 6 Jul, 2015 - 13:01

Last week the resident community at Adhisthana spent a few days ‘at home’ together. There was some study led by Parami on the Dasadhamma Sutta - the ten points to be reflected on by one who has ‘gone forth’; we had couple of inspiring and energising sessions facilitated by Saddhanandi, evoking the vision of Adhisthana and imagining what it will become in five years time; and a day spent exploring how we live together as a community to serve that...

Parami's Perspectives No.2 - Shifting Paradigms

By parami on Fri, 19 Jun, 2015 - 15:09

Parami interviews Dhammadinna and Khemasuri at the end of a retreat at Adhisthana looking at how Buddhists can help promote change in the wider world.

Based on the Dasadhamma Sutta (Discourse on The Ten Dhammas) this investigation of the unconscious paradigms we live by raises much to ponder for anyone who would like to see a kinder, more just and equitable society.

The London Buddhist - No. 3, Community Of The Spirit

By Centre Team on Mon, 30 Mar, 2015 - 17:45

The London Buddhist Centre has a new summer program and a beautiful set of articles looking at the community of the heart and spirit…

“The bonds that exist between us are an inherent part of who we are, how we live and what we do. Nevertheless, the games of separation that we play, through force of habit, produce aversion and conflict, polarization and difference in our lives and the world. Individually and globally this is a cause...
