Kamalashila - The Buddha In Nature (A Talk for Buddhist Action Month 2015)

Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Action Month 2015 on Tue, 16 Jun, 2015 - 18:16

We asked Kamalashila to give a talk for Buddhist Action Month 2015. He responded with this beautifully focussed look at our whole relationship to nature and the elements: how the artificiality in our lives can get in the way of seeing what things are actually like - and what we might do about that in practice!

Kamalashila uses these reflections as a way into evoking a more natural, deeply encouraging perspective, one that allows us to open up to the reality the...

FBA Podcast: Dharma and Nature

Posted by Rijupatha to Free Buddhist Audio on Tue, 5 Aug, 2014 - 21:19This week’s FBA Podcast was given at the London Buddhist Centre’s Dharma Day celebration, July 2014. “Dharma and Nature” by Dhivan, author of “This Being, That Becomes”. The word Dharma means many things, including “nature” – referring to how things work, the true nature of things. We also use the word to refer to the whole interconnected living world.
