Two ‘Carbon Sadhanas’

These are two ‘Carbon Sadhanas’ (meditation visualisations) I wrote a couple of years ago, around the time of the first Order Convention at Bodh Gaya in India, in fact. I hope they might help Buddhists connect a bit more imaginatively with the consequences of their actions if they choose to drive or fly.

A wonderful impromptu visit to Adhisthana, Sangharakshita’s new home and a spiritual centre of the future for Triratna!

Right now building is underway - we climbed to the roof of the library with Vidyatara and Singhamanas to talk about the project and hear about the wonders of the Eco-friendly technology at the heart of the community sites…
