5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #6 Engaged Buddhism

Posted by Sadayasihi to Buddhist Centre Features on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 17:38

It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act. There are two aspects to action. One is to overcome the distortions and afflictions of your own mind, that is, in terms of calming and eventually dispelling anger. This is action out of compassion. The other is more social, more public. When something needs to be done in the world to rectify the wrongs, if one is really concerned with benefiting others, one needs to be engaged, involved.” - The Dalai Lama

Community Practice Day Metta for the Earth Sunday 14 June 10.00-4.30pm

Posted by vidyakaya to Buddhist Action Month 2015 on Thu, 28 May, 2015 - 12:31

A day at the Brighton Buddhist Centre to look at the Earth Metta Practice in more depth. 

How can we relate it to the Six Realms of the Wheel of Life?

How do we practice Metta towards those living in Hell Realms where all they know is suffering – or towards those who live in a realm where all they can understand is Power?

And how do we become Bodhisattvas?  How do we go about practicing the Perfections of Generosity, Ethics, Patience, Energy, Concentration and Wisdom?
