International Women's Day 2021: Parami

By parami on Wed, 10 Mar, 2021 - 11:27

Hi, I’m Parami and, in 1980, I was ordained on a weekend retreat by Sangharakshita. I live in Glasgow, Scotland on my own in a flat in a high rise block in a very working class area (back to my roots). I’m lucky that 3 other Dharmacharinis (Order Members) live in the same high rise block and, before lockdown, we meditated together a couple of mornings a week. A friend called it a vertical community. My days are varied with different...

FBA Podcast: The Revolutionary Power of Love

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 13 Feb, 2021 - 06:00

The Karaniya Metta sutta is the focus for Parami’s exploration of working with anger, working with polarisation in our relationships and in the world. She uses the lesson of the extremes in this current moment in history as a launching pad for insight into the nature of love.

She gave this talk to the gathered Triratna Buddhist Community in Scotland at their New Year gathering online. It has the flavour of a call to practice and...

By Free Buddhist Audio on Tue, 5 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

On Day 11 we welcome Shraddhavani, who joined the Dharmachakra Board of Trustees just over a year ago. 

Initially dismayed that her favourite talk had already been selected by another team member, a further look through the many speakers who inspire her surfaced a beautiful talk given in 2020 by Parami on the mythical creature, the ‘windhorse’…

FBA Podcast: Buddhism and Peace

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 25 Jul, 2020 - 14:00

What is peace? And what does peace mean for Buddhists? Is it just the absence of war and conflict; guns and screaming? Or is it also the deep silence that arises when the mind and heart are in harmony - a positive state of mind that can be cultivated both personally and collectively, where good and evil don’t exist as concepts? Parami explores these questions and more with great compassion and wisdom.

Podcast - Voices from Venezuela / Voces de Venezuela

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 16 Mar, 2020 - 11:57

“In a crisis you have to find new ways to be, you can’t just carry on with the old ways…Buddhism gives you something new…a way of finding happiness, that comes from a different place.”

“I think the world, at the moment, is giving us lessons in the need for spirituality”

On a recent visit to Venezuela, Parami speaks with Abhayasara (ordained in October) and Maria Elena, Wilman and Arsenio who are all involved in the Merida sangha.
