This week we’re giving away the eBook edition of A Concise History of Buddhism by Andrew Skilton. It describes the evolution of Buddhism during its 2,500 years of history and its varied developments in its homeland, India, as well as its spread across Asia, from Mongolia to Sri Lanka and from Japan to the Middle East.

The COVID-19 crisis has affected us all differently. I’ve been very aware of the situation in India and the work Triratna charities are doing there to meet the material and spiritual needs of people with fewer protections than exist in many other parts of the world. To raise money for one of these charities, the Karuna Trust, I’ve recorded an album of Buddhist mantras. The album has raised £917 so far, but with a fundraising target of £5,000 there’s still a...

The high streets are waking from their slumber, and we’re anticipating further easing of the lockdown. There are many questions; is it safe, when will travel be possible, when can I spend time with friends and loved ones in person again, what will happen with work and the economy?

Like many others I’ve also been involved in conversations about race and the growing anti-racism movement. I’ve been thinking about my own place and what I can do, exploring my conditioning, and listening...

Week 12 of free eBooks with 'Free the Dharma'

By Helen - Windhor... on Mon, 8 Jun, 2020 - 12:15

I find it hard to believe we’re now into the twelfth week of our Free the Dharma eBook giveaway. When we began it back in March, we had no idea it would still be running almost three months later. For most people, the past three months have been especially challenging. Whenever I’m feeling challenged, there are two main supports I turn to: friends and books; particularly books about the Dharma. I feel heartened to know that, thanks to Free the...
