Buddhist Voices From Mexico - Upeksamati On How To Start A Buddhist Centre

By Candradasa on Thu, 20 Apr, 2017 - 16:52

Continuing our series of in-depth conversations with Buddhists in Mexico, here is the irrepressible Upeksamati: Dharma pioneer in his homeland and founder of the Mexico City Buddhist Center. 

We hear of his own Buddhist training in England in the 1980s and ’90s and how that influenced his approach to bringing what he learned back home again. We get, in effect, a crash course in the essentials of starting a new Buddhist Center - at scale, and with ambition!

Always engaging, always in love with...

Buddhist Voices From Mexico - Aurea, Pablo & Alejandra

An inspiring, warm conversation that shows the tremendous difference love and support from friends and family can make to anyone practising Buddhism.

Paramachitta on her inspiration to spread the Dharma in the Spanish-speaking world

By Saccanama on Thu, 25 Aug, 2016 - 11:35

Before becoming a public preceptor I had the feeling that one of the most joyful aspects would be putting the kesa around someone’s neck, seeing the joy in their faces, ritually pouring water on the crown of their heads, an action so ancient and so beyond the mundane that you can’t help but connect with something much larger than ordinary life.

And so it is: A beautiful day in June in the heart of England, in the mythical atmosphere created in Adhisthana,...

Paul´s mother, Sabine, is already a mitra within our community and Rodrigo is just 15. We don´t know but he may be the youngest mitra in the world…

Nagapriya is a British Order member, and the Centre’s first Chair. He writes: “There is a high level of interest in Buddhism...
