Dharmabyte: Investigating Skilfulness

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 24 May, 2021 - 06:00

Maitrisara explores two kinds of action: skilful and unskilful in the light of understanding, seeing possibilities. Buddhist ethics is as much a matter of intelligence as it is good intention.

From the talk entitled Perfect Action given at Birmingham Buddhist Centre, 2021, as part of the Sangha Night series on the Noble Eightfold Path.

By Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 17 Sep, 2020 - 14:00

The Bodhicaryavatara culminates with verses of sublime beauty expressing a deep and profound desire for the alleviation of suffering. Maitrisara evokes these verses with tenderness and delight, whilst also turning back to that tricky topic of hell.

From the talk entitled Dedication In the Bodhicaryavatara (6 of 6), part of the series The Bodhicaryavatara given at Birmingham Buddhist Centre, 2019.

Women of Faith: International Women's Day at BMAG -1

By Munisha on Tue, 26 Apr, 2016 - 11:19

Samachitta, until recently Chair of Triratna’s Birmingham Buddhist Centre, spoke at an International Women’s Day interfaith event at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG) on 10th March 2016.

Here’s the text of her talk, ‘Women who have inspired me’ in which she talks about the Buddha’s aunt Mahaprajapati, Dipa Ma and Triratna’s own Maitrisara, Birmingham’s mitra convenor for women - whose picture currently appears next to a Triratna kesa in BMAG’s exhibition ‘Faith in Birmingham’.
