Podcast - An Update from The Sikkha Project

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 19 Apr, 2019 - 09:20

“The idea is that, at some point, it won’t be a project; it’ll just be more like how we do things”

The Sikkha Project aims to support the development of training within Triratna for every level of experience, to discover and share how the different elements of our system of practice are taught and practiced most effectively, and to create resources and training to fill any gaps.

Here’s a conversation with Dhammamegha, currently co-ordinating this project, explaining its origins, who’s involved and the ‘shopping...

Vajratara has been looking up some talks from Tiratanaloka to put online.  They come as part of a series.

I recently interviewed Dhammarati about an emerging project about the system of training in Triratna. It goes by the name of Sikkha (with a long a), which is a Pali word meaning ‘spiritual training’.
