The London Buddhist Magazine - Spring 2016

The London Buddhist Magazine - Spring 2016

By Singhamanas on Fri, 8 Jan, 2016 - 16:19

We (the human race) seem to be characterised by an intense interest in the world. We are even fascinated by it, avidly curious about its workings. Why is it the way it is? How does it work? What does it mean? 

It is possible for us to realise Wisdom and Compassion fully – but to do that we need the challenging and supportive context of a spiritual community. I hope this new edition of our magazine and programme give...

The London Buddhist - No. 4, Unfolding Lives (Winter 2015)

The London Buddhist - No. 4, Unfolding Lives (Winter 2015)

By Candradasa on Mon, 20 Jul, 2015 - 17:46

In this issue of the LBC’s excellent magazine and program some moving and culturally rich examples of this are brought to light - from Shraddhapuspa’s generous life after escape from the Nazis at the start of WWII, to Jayaka’s experience in prison as a young man via an examination of Fellini’s 8 And A...

Kamalashila's Quarterly No.3 - On Gonzo Psychogeography And New Beginnings

By Candradasa on Sat, 18 Apr, 2015 - 18:37

Another excellent conversation with Kamalashila in our occasional series from West London, where we celebrate the opening of their incredibly impressive new Buddhist Centre. But first we touch on all things liminal in our ongoing exchanges about landscape - particularly, in this case, the “gonzo psychogeography” of London and its subterranean rivers. 

We also hear about new beginnings in the shape of a Welsh contemplative community project, and Buddhafield as it re-emerges from some years...

By Centre Team on Mon, 30 Mar, 2015 - 17:45

The London Buddhist Centre has a new summer program and a beautiful set of articles looking at the community of the heart and spirit…

“The bonds that exist between us are an inherent part of who we are, how we live and what we do. Nevertheless, the games of separation that we play, through force of habit, produce aversion and conflict, polarization and difference in our lives and the world. Individually and globally this is a cause...

The London Buddhist, No.1 - The 'Dharmic Receptivity' Issue

By Candradasa on Wed, 20 Aug, 2014 - 16:58The first edition of a new Buddhist magazine from London!

We start with poet Michael Symmons Roberts talking about the sacred nature of things and what we are drawn towards.
