Buddhism at work in the World

By Prajnaketu 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.

Siddhiratna sent this amazing short archive film of the very early days of the FWBO (former name for Triratna) in London in the 1970s as the new community there were preparing to build what would become the London Buddhist Centre in an old fire station…
