Pujas with Altitude

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 14 Feb, 2019 - 17:21

Here’s an interesting initiative: Pujas with Altitude! It’s a chance to climb Snowdon, the highest mountain in the UK, take part in three pujas - on lake, hill and ancient woodland - as well as raise money for Taraloka, in particular, to help build an ‘Earth-Sky’ Garden.

Animisha is one person who has accepted this challenge! She writes: “Taraloka has been an important retreat centre for women to be able to come together to practice.  It...

Twelve Days of FBA - Day 12

By Rijupatha on Wed, 6 Jan, 2016 - 22:09

Here we are! The final Day of FBA, and today we have for you a roundup of some of the other resources on Free Buddhist Audio that we haven’t mentioned already (and there were so many!).

First, though, our main offering today is a lovely interview that was recorded with Dharmachakra’s Director, Candradasa. Candradasa has been involved since the early days of Dharmachakra, when there was just a small collection of taped recordings that were copied and mailed out to people....

By Rijupatha on Mon, 4 Jan, 2016 - 11:00

On Day 10 of our 12 Days of FBA fundraising event we offer you another two absolutely excellent unreleased talks from the Free Buddhist Audio archives!

The main talk is a very special recording of Sangharakshita in a talk given to the European Chairs’ Assembly in 2009 called “The Teachers of the Past”. Sangharakshita makes clear his intentions around the creation of a Refuge Tree for the Western Buddhist Order, specifically drawing a distinction between the inspirational value of historical...

Twelve Days of FBA - Day 11

By Rijupatha on Sun, 3 Jan, 2016 - 22:40

The Triratna Buddhist Order, from its inception, has held as one of its core principles an identical ordination for both men and women - something unique among Buddhist traditions. On day 11 of our 12 Days of FBA event we celebrate the women of our community with two talks from the series “Women Elders of the Triratna Buddhist Community”.

Dhammadinna and Mallika - ordained in 1973 and 1974 respectively - talk about the journey their spiritual lives have taken from...

Twelve Days of FBA - Day 9

By Rijupatha on Sun, 3 Jan, 2016 - 11:00

It’s Day 9 of our 12 Days of FBA fundraiser!  We’ve been sharing some great resources from our archive over the past days, which speak to the preservation of the long history of Buddhism and of the Triratna Community. Today we’d like to turn our gaze forward into the future and highlight those places in which the intersection of Buddhist thought and Western culture - and in particular Triratna’s role in bringing the Dharma to the west - are creating new history.
