Föredrag av Guhyavajra

By Viryabodhi on Tue, 12 Nov, 2013 - 14:41Hej alla Triratna-vänner,


Gårdagens personliga föredrag var något speciellt. Guhyavajra pratade otroligt ärligt och inspirerande om sitt liv, från enkla förhållanden i Nya Zeeland, via en hel del experimenterande, kollektivboende, intagande av olika ‘substanser’, kontakten med buddhismen, Triratna (särskilt den tidiga tiden, under början av 1980-talet) och olika möten med Sangharakshita. Guhyavajra är en av dem i Triratna som haft en väldigt rak och givande kontakt med Sangharakshita. I morse berättade han lite mer för mig, underbart. Jag...

A Single Stream of Dharma Activity

By viriyalila on Mon, 4 Nov, 2013 - 21:32
Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is a lovely description of Sangharakshita we’re calling “A Single Stream of Dharma Activity” given by his editor Kalyanaprabha on the occasion of launching his recent book ‘Dear Dinoo: Letters to a Friend. She shares two remarkable aspects about Sangharakshita: the ordinary and the extraordinary along with reflections on kindness and his embodiment of a single stream of Dharma activity.

Urgyen Sangharakshita's vision for the world

By Suryaprabha on Thu, 31 Oct, 2013 - 15:15

Urgyen Sangharakshita's vision for the world

By Suryaprabha on Thu, 31 Oct, 2013 - 15:15TO SET THE scene, here is a quotation from a film made by Bob Mullan (The Enlightened Englishman, 1989)

Subsequent pages talk about the films I and my team have made about Triratna: its beginnings in the 1960s through to the new century.

I hope you will enjoy looking through this window as much as I have looking through the lens. Lights’ films have been remastered and filed over at LightsintheSky.org. Metta, Suryaprabha

A Conversation with Sangharakshita on Death and Grief

By Candradasa on Tue, 10 Sep, 2013 - 18:25The Abhayaratna Trust provides support for elderly members of the Triratna Buddhist Order who don’t have the resources to fully support themselves.

Ratnachuda writes: I have produced this booklet in gratitude to Sangharakshita who kindly agreed to give me an interview in April 2007, when I was engaged in research for a doctorate with the thesis of ‘grief and bereavement from a Buddhist perspective.’

Urgyen Sangharakshita on Death and Grief

By Candradasa on Tue, 10 Sep, 2013 - 17:38Over on the Abhayaratna Trust’s website there’s a little-known but fascinating conversation extract from 2007 between Sangharakshita ( the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Community) and Ratnachuda talking about the death of Sangharakshita’s mother and sister. It’s part of a longer, in-depth discussion of death and grief generally, and we wanted to draw your attention to that as well as to the excellent work Abhayaratna Trust does on behalf of members of the Order...

Puja pour Sangharakshita

By Ujumani on Sun, 1 Sep, 2013 - 20:53
Tous les ans, le 26 août, le jour de l’anniversaire de Sangharakshita, les Centres bouddhistes Triratna du monde entier lui dédient une puja en sept parties, pour se réjouir de sa présence, de sa vie, et de ce qu’il nous a apporté : son enseignement du Dharma, et la Communauté bouddhiste Triratna.

Pour la puja de cette année, j’ai choisi des lectures de sept textes provenant pour l’essentiel des mémoires de Sangharakshita, et correspondant à chacune des parties de la...
