Out now: ‘The Sound of One Hand’ by Satyadasa

By Helen - Windhor... on Tue, 13 Dec, 2022 - 11:00

We’re delighted to announce the release of Satyadasa’s unputdownable memoir, The Sound of One Hand, which is a tender account of one person’s ‘Dharma life’. What does it look like to live a contemporary Buddhist life, with a strong response to the Buddha’s teachings, as well as ambition, a partner, a sense of humour, one of the most interesting grandfathers imaginable, and a stump for a left hand?

Satyadasa self-published the book earlier this year, and we’re very pleased to be publishing...

New podcast episode: A Buddhist guide to digital life

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 19 Oct, 2022 - 11:15

A lot of life is spent online these days. It is the medium for news, entertainment, work, debate and perspective, music, keeping up with friends, dating, and, for some, pornography.

In our latest podcast episode, Dhammamegha speaks with new author Prajnaketu about his upcoming book Cyberloka: A Buddhist guide to digital life. Prajnaketu wants to open up ways of thinking and talking about our digital lives that draw on the teachings of the Buddha. 

We talk about hyper-availability and how to go mindfully into our...

FBA Podcast: Hatred and Love

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 3 Jul, 2021 - 06:00

With his usual warmth, clarity and good humour, Prajnaketu explores the mental events of hatred and love with great detail and personal reflections.

“Not by hatred are hatreds ever pacified in the world, by love are they pacified, this is the eternal law.” ~ Dhammapada

In the presence of suffering or pain, our sense of self is often diminished as we come to realize our efforts to control our experience to avoid pain don’t work. On the contrary, wishing ourselves and others well...

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 15 May, 2020 - 11:49

We are delighted to say that this week we will be joined by a team of Young Order members who will be sharing their reflections on the Seven-Point Mind Training material. First up is Prajnaketu, Triratna’s Young Buddhist coordinator. 

Prajnaketu, from sunny Oxford, UK, shares his thoughts on the teaching of the Four Reminders: our precious human birth, death and impermanence, karma and rebirth, and the defects of samsara. Noting that these reflections can be a bit of...

make a difference - a conversation

By Prajnaketu on Wed, 29 Apr, 2020 - 11:00

I’m Prajnaketu and I’m in a field (…slightly getting bitten) but this Sunday I’d like to invite you to join me and other young Buddhists from around the world at the Sunday conversation.

This is a great way to connect with other young Buddhists (18-30) from around the world and to enter into deeper discussion on topics that matter to you at the moment.

The format is normally a bit of meditation, then I kick-start a conversation, but the majority of the event takes...

I'll be there for you? a conversation

By Prajnaketu on Wed, 22 Apr, 2020 - 11:07

What does friendship look like now? I’m Prajnaketu and I’ve been back in the UK for seven weeks, after travelling in India, and apart from my girlfriend (who I live with) in all that time I’ve seen just one of my friends in person. I’m sure this is a familiar situation to many of us.

So how are you finding this? What does it mean for us to say ‘I’ll be there for you’ when ‘there’ means more like ‘over there’...
