Buddhism at work in the World

Posted by Prajnaketu to Triratna Young Buddhists on Wed, 27 Jun, 2018 - 10:52

From Sally at Lama’s Pyjamas

What does the Buddha say about work? What is Triratna’s way of translating this into practice? What’s it like working in a Buddhist business? 

You are warmly invited to join us for a day exploring what it means to work as Buddhists in the modern world, Sunday 8 July, at the London Buddhist Centre. 

Watch this new Clear Vision film about Lama’s Pyjamas and Triratna’s unique approach to Right Livelihood for a taste of this special event.

5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online: #1 New Online Spaces and Physical Places

“Civic spaces are an extension of the community. When they work well, they serve as a stage for our public lives. If they function in their true civic role, they can be the settings where celebrations are held, where exchanges both social and economic take place, where friends run into each other, and where cultures mix.” [1]

Since The Buddhist Centre officially launched 5 years ago many web spaces have sprung into being which allow greater community building across Triratna as...

(Originally posted in the London Buddhist Centre newsletter, July 2017)

Beginnings

Ten years ago – my son Gowan then just three months old – I started meeting with other new mothers in the LBC library on a Wednesday morning. We would meditate and talk whilst our babies slept or rolled around on the floor together. Whether we were exploring metta, impermanence, the preciousness of human life or the simple need for more sleep it was a blessing and a relief to be...

BAM at the London Buddhist Centre with Transforming Self and World

Posted by Steph Delany to Buddhist Action on Wed, 5 Jul, 2017 - 21:50

June has been a particularly turbulent month in the city of London.  The violent attacks and tragic incidents the city has experienced have given us much to pause and reflect upon.  It can feel as though the forces that govern our country and the wider world base their values on greed, fear, hatred and misinformation; the very poisons we try to work against in Buddhist practice.  More than ever it seems critical for each and every one of us and...
