Dharmabyte: Sangha Doesn’t Happen By Chance

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 19 Mar, 2020 - 13:00

Suryamati reminds us that the spiritual life is difficult to practice on one’s own. Here we here the story of Meghiya where the Buddha advises that spiritual friendship is needed for the heart’s release.

How do we be a sangha member? How do we help others in their practice of sangha?

Here, we get an introduction to the teaching on the Samgrahavastus, the four means of unification.

From the talk entitled Building the Buddhaland given at Sangha Night, Sheffield Buddhist Centre,...

FBA Podcast: Tantra For the Modern World

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 7 Mar, 2020 - 14:00

Satyajyoti introduces the tantra: Buddhism to set life aflame through deep personal transformation of our direct experience. Out with abstractions and theory, it’s time to act ‘as if your turban was on fire!’ In the words of Sangharakshita, ‘making Buddhism respectable is the last thing we should do’. 

In her introductory talk, Satyajyoti outlines five key principles of Tantric Buddhism and explains the tantric equivalents of the three Buddhist refuges, the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

A Buddhist View of Current World Problems @ Earth Metta Sangha (Wed. 5 Oct)

By Christine on Thu, 8 Sep, 2016 - 14:54

Some of Sangharakshita’s introductory words on sustainability, activism and Buddhism can be found articulated in the final chapter of What is the Sangha? (Chapter 20: A Buddhist View of Current World Problems):

“…there is still… the question of what an individual Buddhist can have to say that is truly relevant to world problems. All I can say for myself is that the work I have engaged in as a Buddhist has arisen…out of the view I take on current world problems. This topic is not of...

June 26 @ 13:15 in Great Hall > Meditate for Peace, for Nuclear Disarmament, for Mass Investment in Renewables and Green Jobs

By Christine on Wed, 22 Jun, 2016 - 15:44

On June 26, Sheffield Buddhist Centre will join the international Triratna Buddhist Community to demonstrate our desire for peace, and our opposition to nuclear power. Santasiddhi and Christine will lead the event, which may be akin to a ”love-in” as prescribed by  Sangharakshita in his 1984 talk on “Buddhism, World Peace, and Nuclear War” (*).

The meditation will take place in the Great Hall during Summer Fair at 13:15.

In 2016, parliament will vote whether to replace and modernise the UK’s nuclear weapons system called Trident. It’s made up of four submarines – one of which is on...
