Reviewing How The Preceptors' College Works

Quite a number of them are now approaching 70, or are already into their 70s. We...

Buddhist Voices from India - A Discussion with Kalyanadharini and Vidyadharini

Posted by Candradasa to Community Highlights on Tue, 5 Mar, 2013 - 10:46
Another ‘Buddhist Voices’ episode from the end of the Triratna Buddhist Order Convention 2013 at Bodh Gaya in India. A pretty fantastic discussion with two ‘dharinis’ - young, inspired Indian Dharmacharinis who speak boldly about the challenges faced by women practising the Dharma in India.

A wonderful conversation too around issues of leadership and taking one’s place in the sangha in order to come alive and help others. Very exciting listening!

Recorded at Bodh Gaya, India,...
