Dharmabyte: There’s Potentiality In Every Moment

By Zac on Thu, 20 Oct, 2022 - 06:00

Does my life matter? Can I really say that actions have consequences? In this short talk Kavyamani explores the Yogacara teaching of the Alaya Vijnana, commonly referred to as the storehouse consciousness, reflecting that all our actions are like seeds and at some point they will bear fruit.

FBA Podcast: Letting Go

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 6 Nov, 2021 - 05:00

The retreat theme was Padmasambhava’s advice to Queen Ngang Chung.

FBA Podcast: The Tumble Dryer of Karma

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 23 May, 2020 - 14:00

In this talk, Moksatara  explores what karma really means and how we can work with this law of the universe to leave behind the ‘snakes and ladders’ game of repetitive ups and downs, moving instead on a liberating path of growth. By understanding the importance of conditionality and ethics, we can take charge of our lives and move in the direction we want to go.

Recorded at Sheffield Buddhist Centre, January 2020.

Garavavati's Reflections on the slogan “Drive all Blame into one” - Turning Arrows into Flowers: Day 3

By kusaladevi on Sun, 17 May, 2020 - 10:54

Garavavati, living in a women’s residential Buddhist community in London, UK, shares her reflections around this slogan, particularly the choice we have between the limiting restrictions of experiencing blame and the freedom in choosing to take responsibility for our own minds.

⁣⁣⁣Reflecting that our actions have consequences, Garavavati concludes that the potential of reflecting on this slogan could lead to the ultimate freedom and protection of Awakening.
