Dharmabyte: The Dharma Jewel

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 27 Jul, 2018 - 12:20

This FBA Dharmabyte is called ‘The Dharma Jewel’ by Sangharakshita. Dharma is the experience of reality, and also the expression of that experience in the form of the Buddha’s teaching, especially the law of conditionality. It is the raft that carries you to Enlightenment, the further shore; it is whatever helps you to develop spiritually.

This is an excerpt from the talk entitled ‘The Meaning of the Dharma‘ given in 1968 as part of the series ‘...

A Progress Report
For the past year we’ve been consulting all of the partners on The Buddhist Centre Online project - garnering feedback that will help us build version 2 of the website. It’s great to have clear data after a few years of use - and, as it turns out, very consistent responses too!

The Buddha's Footprint

By Christine on Tue, 17 Feb, 2015 - 19:56
This is a thorough read on the historical role that early Buddhism played to the economic and political development of Asia, from the perspective of environmental impact. It’s not the view that we’re normally taught, and I found it a bit challenging for this reason.

The Urban Retreat Online - A Trial of the Social Network

By Candradasa on Sat, 21 Apr, 2012 - 19:54

I gave this talk at the European Chair’s Assembly in January 2012 about the trial we did during the Urban Retreat (October 2011) for Groups and Projects on thebuddhistcentre.com. We learned a lot and this is a report on the experience - and the potential - of a Triratna social network, with some considerations of the bigger questions about how online contexts can help foster a sense of community and support people in their personal practice.
