#EthicalChristmas: Money, Ethics, and Dharma Practice - A New Campaign on The Buddhist Centre Online

By Candradasa on Wed, 8 Oct, 2014 - 17:00A couple of months ago I was sitting in a room at Adhisthana, listening to my friend Mokshini speak very movingly about some quite profound shifts in her own sense of Dharma practice. She talked about having newly considered in her own life the sorts of issues raised by Triratna’s participation in Buddhist Action Month every year: environmental concerns, economic questions, all manner of socially engaged topics relevant to anyone looking to explore the...

International Council 2014, Voices No. 4 - Aryaketu (India, Order Strand)

By Dassini on Sun, 10 Aug, 2014 - 16:07
A great conversation on today’s podcast with Aryaketu from India. Inspiring tales from his Aryaloka Computer Institute project teaching I.T. skills to women and men from amongst India’s poorest communities as a way out of poverty. And a rousing evocation of why the International Council represents something vital to the sangha in India and is, indeed, the flowering of Dr. Ambedkar’s vision for the Dalit community.

Triratna America - Dayamudra: Jai Bhim International

By Candradasa on Thu, 20 Jun, 2013 - 20:25
Dayamudra runs Jai Bhim International out of San Francisco, working with Dalit communities in India to escape the stigma of caste through education. This is a great interview where her natural passion for a cause that’s dear to her heart really shines through. An excellent introduction to the injustices of ‘untouchability’ in India and to how to move beyond it. Practically inspiring words from an inspired lady!

The end of week two and things are moving on, here on the Green Tara Appeal. I’m pleased to say that Amritasuri and Jamie are both well again and have rejoined us. Now...

Notes from an Appealing Buddhist

Seven strangers coming together on a Saturday afternoon: Dantacitta, Prakashaka, Sanghamani, Amitasuri, Jamie, Sally and myself. Only Dantacitta and Prakashika, (both from Australia), knew each other well.

It could have been a recipe for chaos: six of the seven had never lived in a Buddhist community or done a Karuna Appeal before. Add in two days of intensive reporting-in and workshopping, then complicate further with meals to cook, jobs to...
