Rejoicing in Kamalashila – Satyaraja

By satyaraja on Thu, 21 May, 2020 - 15:14

During the March Area College gathering for the UK, Ireland and Europe, Kamalashila attended for an evening to have a farewell following his retirement from the Preceptors’ College at the end of last year. He was able to share some of his current threads of practice and inspiration, and a number of those present rejoiced in him. Here we share two of those contributions from Sanghadevi and Satyaraja.

I first met Kamalashila in the early part of 1980 at...

Total Immersion - it's not about swimming

By Munisha on Wed, 24 Aug, 2016 - 08:21

Vajrapriya reports from this summer’s 28-day Buddhafield ‘Total Immersion’ retreat 2016 which took place in England in May and June, led by him and Kamalashila.

“’A world-class event!’ declared an Order member reporting out. Looking round the cluster of comrades gathered in the home-made dome, in a slightly boggy Devon field, it was easy to underestimate the extraordinariness of this event.

‘Total immersion’ doesn’t just refer to the intensity of meditation, but also to immersion in the elements....

A new future for Vajrakuta?

By Munisha on Sat, 30 Aug, 2014 - 18:30Once the FWBO’s main study centre, Vajrakuta is a short walk through woods and fields from Vajraloka Meditation Centre, near Corwen, North Wales (UK). It’s been a meditation and study community for the FWBO/Triratna since the 1980s, and Prakasha and Srisambhava led retreats there more recently. Now they plan to sell it and move to a cottage nearby.

Kamalashila wants to buy it for Triratna and find some men to form a monastic community. He’s looking...
