The new site is beautiful and it’s so easy to find things. It looks really great on iPhone and Mac, and is really easy to use. I’m enjoying new ways of finding content. No issues so far. Sadhu!

Buddhafield 2021: Talks on YouTube - Kiss the Earth

By kusaladevi on Fri, 13 Aug, 2021 - 18:52

In case you missed them, the talks from the Buddhafield “Kiss the Earth” festival are now available to watch on YouTube! 

A wonderful set of talks from Sanghadhara, Saddhanandi, Chittapala, Maitrijyoti, Dhivan, Kusaladevi and Joanna Spence.

The theme of the festival was “Kiss the Earth”. When we connect with the earth, we are also connecting with ourselves and with other beings, recognizing we are part of a greater whole. We can begin to let go of the barriers...

Kiss the Earth: Buddhafield 2021- the Talks!

By Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 15 Jul, 2021 - 20:56

When we connect with the earth, we are also connecting with ourselves and with other beings, recognizing we are part of a greater whole. We can begin to let go of the barriers that separate us from one another

We have learnt this past few years how rapidly things can change, and seen the illusion that humanity is in total control swept away. A more humble, respectful approach is need to rebalance our world, both internally and externally. 

To kiss the earth is to...

FBA Podcast: The Possibility of Practice

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 16 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

If a talk could ever be described as beautifully bracing, this is it! Amaragita brings a sharp-edged mind and a long-term perspective to the whole question of what practice is.

As you might expect, she also brings humour, warmth and kindness too, qualities that more than balance out the penetrating clarity and sometimes challenging questioning underpinning this exploration of the possibility of practice - for all and especially for those raising families at any stage of...

The Twelve Days of FBA (2020) - Day 12: 'Fields of Creativity' by Sangharakshita

By Free Buddhist Audio on Wed, 6 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

And for our last day of the Twelve Days of FBA we are delighted to have Ratnaghosha recommend a late talk by Sangharakshita entitled ’Fields of Creativity’

Ratnaghosha was the host on the occasion of this recording when Sangharakshita returned to London to launch the final volume of his memoirs, ‘Moving Against the Stream’. From Yogi Chen to Beowulf, Aristotle to William Blake, this is a sparkling evocation of the crucial role of creativity in any Dharma...

The Twelve Days of FBA (2020) - Day 11: 'Virya and the Windhorse' by Parami

By Free Buddhist Audio on Tue, 5 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

On Day 11 we welcome Shraddhavani, who joined the Dharmachakra Board of Trustees just over a year ago. 

Initially dismayed that her favourite talk had already been selected by another team member, a further look through the many speakers who inspire her surfaced a beautiful talk given in 2020 by Parami on the mythical creature, the ‘windhorse’…

The Twelve Days of FBA (2020) - Day 10: 'Padmasambhava' by Sangharakshita

The Twelve Days of FBA (2020) - Day 10: 'Padmasambhava' by Sangharakshita

By Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 4 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

On Day 10 Parami recommends a scintillating title by Sangharakshita entitled simply Padmasambhava. Originally unreleased (because it was given off-the-cuff after Sangharakshita lost his notes!), this inspired talk sees Triratna’s founder intrigued by the Great Guru’s ability to transform the demons of the world, especially in the West.
