Buddhist Voices - Danadasa & Prasadachitta on San Francisco, Consciousness, and Friendship

By Candradasa on Wed, 28 Oct, 2015 - 22:53

We continue to celebrate the diversity of those attending the 2015 Triratna Buddhist Order Pan-American Convention in Mexico with two close friends from San Francisco. The theme of the Convention is friendship itself as a whole path of practice, and this is a pleasing ramble with two Californians taking in topics as diverse as the tech boom in San Francisco, the nature of interpretative understanding, and how beautiful it is to sit in a garden as part of a Buddhist...

Buddhist Voices - Abhayagita From Mexico On Pilgrimage And Native Ground For The Dharma

By Candradasa on Tue, 27 Oct, 2015 - 05:30

As part of our Buddhist Voices series, Abhayagita - whose name means ‘Song of Fearlessness’ - tells us (in English y en español) about her project to take women on pilgrimage from Mexico to India in the footsteps of the Buddha. En route we hear about her home country’s engagement with the Dharma, and end up in a fascinating space around Aztec and Mayan culture as fertile native soil for the Dharma to take root…

All this week we’ll be bringing you coverage of the best bits (talks, podcast interviews, images, the odd wee video) from the Pan-American Convention, just getting underway here in the astonishingly beautiful sugar cane country near Cuernavaca, Mexico. We’ve got a 3G connection and we’re going to go for it to keep you in touch as Order members gather from across the American continent to share their Dharma inspiration.

You’ll hear new voices and accents, (at least)...

International Council 2014, Voices No. 8 - Jnanadakini (Latin America & Spain, Order Strand)

By Candradasa on Tue, 19 Aug, 2014 - 21:22
Jnanadakini from Mexico joins us as our last Buddhist voice from the 2014 Triratna International Council. As the great assembly draws to a close she reflects with us on a strong week and the challenges in taking its inspiration back to a more isolated part of our community. Having moved from some scepticism about the value of the meeting to out and out enthusiasm, Jnanadakini is a great advocate of the spiritual practice involved in international gatherings!
