Training In A System of Buddhist Practice

By Candradasa on Wed, 1 Jun, 2016 - 18:34

Dhammamegha recently interviewed Dhammarati for the Triratna International Council about an emerging project around the system of training in Triratna. It goes by the name of Sikkha (with a long a), which is a Pali word meaning ‘spiritual training’. It is about deepening our understanding of what and how we practice and teach within the Triratna community, and developing an explicit shared framework to talk about it. 

Here, Dhammarati reflects on what is essential in Buddhist practice: a growth of awareness which leads to positive and rich emotion...

By viriyalila on Fri, 30 Oct, 2015 - 00:25

Viriyalila in conversation with the wonderful Saddhajoti, whose vision of a Buddhist retreat centre rising out of barren sugar cane plantation land has been fully realized here at Chintamani, near Cuernavaca in Mexico.

Buddhist Voices - Danadasa & Prasadachitta on San Francisco, Consciousness, and Friendship

By Candradasa on Wed, 28 Oct, 2015 - 22:53

We continue to celebrate the diversity of those attending the 2015 Triratna Buddhist Order Pan-American Convention in Mexico with two close friends from San Francisco. The theme of the Convention is friendship itself as a whole path of practice, and this is a pleasing ramble with two Californians taking in topics as diverse as the tech boom in San Francisco, the nature of interpretative understanding, and how beautiful it is to sit in a garden as part of a Buddhist...

By Candradasa on Tue, 27 Oct, 2015 - 05:30

As part of our Buddhist Voices series, Abhayagita - whose name means ‘Song of Fearlessness’ - tells us (in English y en español) about her project to take women on pilgrimage from Mexico to India in the footsteps of the Buddha. En route we hear about her home country’s engagement with the Dharma, and end up in a fascinating space around Aztec and Mayan culture as fertile native soil for the Dharma to take root…
