Beauty and Environmental Action (The Dharma Toolkit Podcast, Episode 41)

Kaspalita Thompson from the Network of Buddhist Organisations UK writes:

By Candradasa on Wed, 29 Aug, 2018 - 16:21

It’s like the laboratory of our minds.
Ratnadeva

It excites me too, the science… very strong links, science and Dharma.
Amitamati

NB. Amitamati has been in touch to say that in track 3 when she refers to having studied “Social Sciences” for 25 years she actually meant “Life Sciences”.

Amitamati’s Annals

In 1968: I wasn’t born! May be My consciousness was waiting for the right womb!

Parami's Perspectives No. 4 - Tejopala and Akasamati on Climate Change and Triratna

By parami on Fri, 23 Oct, 2015 - 01:12

Parami is back, reporting from  Australasia - or is it Oceania? - talking with two friends who have spent much of their adult lives reflecting on - and acting upon - climate change as an integral aspect of their Buddhist practice. A fascinating, sometimes sobering, but realistically positive conversation about what environmental issues have to do with the Dharma - and what we can do to get involved…

Topics covered include ‘transition towns’; Al Gore’s initiative; thinking about our kids; how to...
