Dharmabyte: Being in Connection with Other Beings

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 15 Nov, 2021 - 06:00

Parami touches on aspects of Sangharakshita’s ‘system of meditation’, and most specifically the area of positive emotion. Parami is an ideal guide for this sort of material, steeped as she is in study and practice engaged within the light of the ‘Bodhichitta’, and the Bodhisattva Ideal itself.

From the talk entitled The Awakening Heart given at Taraloka Buddhist Centre, 2006.

FBA Podcast: Love and Loss

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 23 Oct, 2021 - 06:00

Parami urges us to embrace loss, because it is inevitable, but equally so, don’t close yourself off to love. Accepting that everything that arises will pass, and yet everything that arises is precious that will give rise to a love that spreads throughout the cosmos.

Dharmabyte: Shared Values

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 9 Aug, 2021 - 06:00

Parami offers an enthusiastic exploration of the earthy and ethereal details of everyday spiritual practice, especially within the framework of a sense of the ‘collective’. Some great and pretty funny stories from early, would-be-revolutionary experiments with co-operative working (“The opiate of the masses has arrived!”), and some wise words from her subsequent experience of trying to square the circle of dealing with one’s own individuality within a working sangha.

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.

FBA Podcast: Buddhism and Peace

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?
