Suvajra's Seasonal - No 3, Winter: Meeting Dhardo Rimpoche

By Candradasa on Tue, 23 Jun, 2015 - 20:09

We’re making a virtue of the long gap since Suvajra’s autumn seasonal by switching to the southern hemisphere for our frame of reference! As colder weather settles over the realms of the south we hear about a Scotsman’s adventures in India…

This set of fascinating winter tales comes from the mid ’80s when Suvajra travels to the east to conduct his first ordinations on behalf of his teacher, Urgyen Sangharakshita. There he encounters two important figures in the history of...

Kamalashila's Quarterly No.2 - On Landscape and Experiment

By Candradasa on Wed, 12 Nov, 2014 - 20:28
Our second extensive conversation with Kamalashila comes a little late in the ‘quarterly’ cycle but is well worth waiting for as we plunge deep into some rich, sparkling pools of conversation that yield much to delight, challenge, refresh, and stimulate…

We have three main connected topics this time: landscape itself and its effect on individuals within a particular culture of practice; experimental practice as a spiritual movement changes and grows; and what we have to learn from the wider...

Kamalashila's Quarterly No.1

By Candradasa on Wed, 4 Dec, 2013 - 17:25
A delightful conversation with Kamalashila, one of the most experienced meditation teachers in the Triratna Buddhist Order. This first interview of a proposed quarterly series was recorded in summer 2012 and affords some lovely insights into Kamalashila’s own history of practice as it interweaves with that of the Triratna Community since the early 1970s. A thought-provoking look back at the roots of our community, and an optimistic look forward in the light of many changes and new kinds of realities…

Retreat at Keffolds, 1972

By Candradasa on Fri, 12 Jul, 2013 - 19:28Going around over on Facebook is this great video from the early ’70s featuring many of the early pioneers of the Triratna Buddhist Community. The film was made by Steven Burckhardt and Victress Hitchcock.

Here’s what Kamalashila, Buddhafield’s President, had to say about it:

“This is how it was - and in many ways, is still. 1972, the year I discovered Triratna. Beautifully made with fascinating clips of such luminaries as Subhuti, Dhammadinna, Graham...
