By Centre Team on Sat, 23 Jun, 2018 - 16:21

Day 5 saw us exploring the topic of gender diversity - who walks past our doors and how can we open up our Buddhist Centres to everyone? Dassini from Scotland is joined by Prajnasahaya from Germany and Prajnaketu from England to recap the day for us.

Kamalamani: On Unbounded Love

By mokshini on Tue, 14 Jun, 2016 - 04:00

For Buddhist Action Month 2016 we asked our friends from around the world to say what the Bodhisattva Ideal means to them…

Kamalamani’s exploration of issues around consciously choosing childlessness as an ethical move is both fascinating and challenging. The context of unbounded compassion for all beings is vital and animates an issue we all face in our lives as human beings coming to terms with an over-populated world.
