First Skype meditation!

Posted by Candradasa to Online Meditators on Tue, 1 Jan, 2013 - 22:29Hi all,

Just to say Ben and I and others have arranged our first meeting - January 3rd at 4.30pm UK time (11.30am EST, 10pm Maharashtra). Join us if you can and let’s sit together. Maybe we could find some space too to discuss further meetings, other tech options (eg. Google Hangout), etc.? I’m making 90 mins free for the whole thing - hellos, meditation and discussion. Hope to see you online soon!

Kärleken och buddhismen

Posted by Viryabodhi to Stockholms buddhistcenter on Tue, 30 Oct, 2012 - 12:56Kärleken & buddhismen
ett öppet föredrag
måndag 5/11
kl. 18.30–20.30, donation
av Viryabodhi

Hur ser buddhismen på kärlek? Finns det en plats för romantisk kärlek i en buddhists liv? Och hur är det egentligen med vänskap och kärlek; och kärleken till läraren? Buddhismen har ett stort kärleksideal och även övningar som hjälper oss att förverkliga det.
Men vad ska Viryabodhi egentligen säga? Det finns bara ett sätt att ta reda på det.

Karaniya Metta Sutta chant in Pali (end of Triratna International Retreat 2012)

Posted by lokabandhu to Imagine the Buddha on Tue, 5 Jun, 2012 - 21:52
The evening after the retreat ended, just the team left on site gathered for a quiet evening of meditation and chanting: a quietly perfect way to round off the International Retreat – some exquisite chanting of the sublime Karaniya Metta Sutta, which outlines the basis of the Buddhist practice of ‘friendship of the lovely’, ‘friendship of the beautiful’.
