The Guru's Advice: Sub35 Festival Retreat

By Caroline I P on Mon, 10 May, 2021 - 12:12

THU 26 AUGMON 30 AUG

Lived out fully, Buddhist practice is revolutionary. Its purpose is a complete transformation of every element of our lives and of the world around us. 

The legendary Tibetan Guru Padmasambhava is the archetype of this transformation. His mythic life story presents a conflict between the forces of light and the forces of darkness – a conflict that takes place within our own hearts and minds. Following his example, we can learn to...

Young women's weekend retreat: The Cremation Ground & the Skull Cup of Wisdom (ONLINE)

By SophieAnn on Sun, 31 Jan, 2021 - 09:11

An exciting online opportunity for young women, aged 18 to 30.

Friday 30 April 30 to Sunday 2 May.

The ancient Indian cremation ground is a symbol for any crucial situation where we meet impermanence, death, aloneness and fear. It is also a symbol of transformation, a place where death meets life and life meets death. A place where great yogis and dakinis gather at night in darkenss and secrecy, meditating, dancing, embracing and drinking from the skull cup of wisdom. A place of liberated...

Sangharakshita's diary

By Sadayasihi on Wed, 6 Jun, 2018 - 10:25

Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes from AdhisthanaUK:

“As we come to the end of May, Adhisthana has become quite steamy. What with the hot summery weather and then the last few days of heavy showers and thunderstorms the air is humid and the hills have disappeared in a white haze of moisture. Having said all that, it’s been a glorious time for the gardens and gardening. Many new plants have gone in and now they...

Buddhist Action Month 2018: Transforming Self, Transforming World

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 26 Feb, 2018 - 16:00

On the BAM Space, Mokshini writes: “The theme for BAM 2018 is Transforming Self, Transforming World.

As always, the theme for BAM is inspired by contemporary issues, and this year’s emphasis invites us to stop and look at the big picture: 

It is becoming evident that our society urgently needs a new story, a new myth to live by. As an example. George Monbiot puts it very well in this recent short interview where he outlines the need for a psycho-spiritual approach that is thoroughly meaningful and that...

Ancient Royal Orchard newly founded in east London, UK

By Munisha on Thu, 16 Oct, 2014 - 00:18Uddiyana was an ancient land famous for rich, fertile plains, soaring mountains and an abundance of natural environment and culture. Sounds a long way from the streets of Leytonstone, east London, UK? A long-established Triratna men’s community there has just adopted “Uddiyana” (Royal Orchard) as its new name.

As they explain, “Uddiyana was the mythical birthplace of Padmasambhava. He’s an important figure for our community, and has a central place on our shrine. Actually, though, our...
