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

The lotus is the image that the Buddha uses to describe the growth of human beings: the unfolding of life from unfavourable conditions. 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.

The London Buddhist - No. 3, Community Of The Spirit

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…

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...

Walthamstow Women's Community

By Nandavajra on Wed, 11 Mar, 2015 - 11:28Walthamstow Women’s Community

Would you like to join our women’s Triratna Buddhist community?

The existing community is made up of three women in our mid-twenties to early thirties and a tortoiseshell cat called Maggie. It is a friendly, open and supportive environment which we feel allows our Buddhist practice to really flourish.

Ancient Royal Orchard newly founded in east London, UK

By Munisha on Thu, 16 Oct, 2014 - 00:18Uddiyana was an ancient land famous for rich, fertile plains, soaring mountains and an abundance of natural environment and culture. Sounds a long way from the streets of Leytonstone, east London, UK? A long-established Triratna men’s community there has just adopted “Uddiyana” (Royal Orchard) as its new name.
