Guhyapati: On Inner And Outer Transformation

Posted by Buddhist Action Month 2016 on Wed, 15 Jun, 2016 - 04:00

For Buddhist Action Month 2016 we asked our friends from around the world to say what the Bodhisattva Ideal means to them…

Guhyapati has been spearheading a pioneering Eco-Dharma community in the Pyrenees for many years, and wants to see some of the principles of that movement brought to bear in our own lives of practice, giving rise to new projects that will re-shape the personal, economic, political and ecological landscape of the 21st Century.

Revitalising the New Society

Posted by ecodharma on Wed, 17 Dec, 2014 - 19:00The New Society idea was at the heart of Sangharakshita’s founding vision for the Triratna Community in the 1960’s and 70’s.

Taking a step forwards in the exploration, Guhyapati (from the ...
