Lokamitra - The Sangha and the Structure of Social Change

By Candradasa on Sun, 3 Mar, 2013 - 16:17
Lokamitra is the ideal person to talk about the amazing transformative influence of the Dharma on people’s lives. Its power to effect change in Indian society in seemingly intractable areas like caste offers a hopeful glimpse of the future for any Buddhist community with aspirations to embody the Buddha’s teachings on the pre-eminence of mind in shaping the world we inhabit.

Looking at both Sangharakshita’s teaching on Buddhism and ‘The New Society’ and Dr. Ambedkar’s Dhamma revolution,...

Falling Behind, Catching Up!

By Candradasa on Sat, 2 Mar, 2013 - 04:45Good morning from Bodh Gaya and the last day of the Order Convention! We’re obviously not quite keeping up with the amazing flow of Dharma material but today is the last day and as everyone starts to depart we will be keeping going until you’re all caught up - wherever you are! Should only take a few days - look out for talks (we sorted out the sound!) and interviews and videos and the rest from days 4-6…

Subhuti - Revering and Relying on the Sangha

By Candradasa on Tue, 26 Feb, 2013 - 03:45
A great talk by Subhuti to get the first full day of the Triratna Order Convention for 2013 off to a deeply engaging start. Looking at the Garava Sutta in its earlier and later versions, and drawing inspiration from the occasion and our setting so close to the Vajrasana (the Buddha’s ‘Seat of Enlightenment’), Subhuti draws out a distinctive difference that opens into a world of significance for our Buddhist Order and the wider Triratna Community.

Day 2 Gallery - From Procession to Puja

By Candradasa on Tue, 26 Feb, 2013 - 02:52
A full day that began with the mindful procession to the Mahabodhi temple to sit before the Vajrasana. When we got there we discovered our place was being used by Tibetans who had stayed one day more than expected! Later, Subhuti gave his talk, ‘Revering and Relying on the Sangha’, and then we returned at night to the seat of the...
