Closing the Being Divine Online home retreat

By kusaladevi on Fri, 1 May, 2020 - 17:01

We hope you have enjoyed Being Divine Online with us this week! 

The retreat ended with this beautiful song by Ratnavandana, which retreatants sing together at the end of her Brahma Viharas retreats.

Thank you so much to Ratnavandana for supplying us with these fantastic resources around the Brahma Viharas, for sharing her practice and experience so fully and for her wonderful evocation and explanation of the Divine Abodes in the Q & A where 138 of us gathered together.

'Standing shoulder to shoulder with one another' - an appeal from Vessantara

By The Abhayaratna... on Tue, 26 Apr, 2016 - 08:04

‘The whole sense that Sangharakshita gave me of the Order was of something through which we were deeply involved with one another’s lives, were really standing shoulder to shoulder with one another, caring for one another not just spiritually but on all levels, and that’s really stayed with me. That spirit is still alive in the Order today, and I feel that The Abhayaratna Trust is one way we can really express it.’
