By Sadayasihi on Sat, 8 Aug, 2020 - 14:00

Virya is the energetic counterpart to the patience of Ksanti; it is energy in pursuit of the good.

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.
