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.

The Lotus Blooming: Creating the Story of Triratna in Spain

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 30 Apr, 2019 - 15:34
