Dharmabyte: Work Reflects Us Back Like a Mirror

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 19 Aug, 2021 - 06:00

Is work just a necessity or a source of fulfillment? Is a career a hindrance or a support to our happiness and unfoldment as individuals?

Keturaja, calling on decades of experience working in Buddhist businesses, explores Buddhist teachings on right livelihood and reflects on their relevance for us today.

From the talk entitled Why Right Livelihood? Given at Cambridge Buddhist...

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’.

Building Buddhist Businesses

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 2 Mar, 2020 - 16:39

Right Livelihood is an important aspect of the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. The Buddha encouraged his followers to engage in compassionate activity, and to make their living in a way that does not cause harm and that is ethically positive. But what does that look like in today’s world? How do we engage with work as Buddhists, and what are the options if you want to work with other Buddhists? The idea behind the “Building a Buddhist Business” workshop held recently at the London Buddhist Centre...
