Sanghamani - Transforming Sangha (Triratna International Gathering 2019)

By Free Buddhist Audio on Sun, 25 Aug, 2019 - 00:31

Sanghamani with a great second talk from the 2019 Triratna International Gathering. Her theme on this Alchemy of the Dharma weekend is how we can transform ourselves in order to transform our communities. And she leads with fearlessness in discussing her own work and practice in this regard.

As a fundraiser at the cutting edge of the practice of connection – trying to forge a sense of mutually vital relationship with strangers (who are not necessarily pleased to find you at their...

Sadayasihi is reunited with Gina Plant Cabrita and Christine Thuring who all first met on the 2014 Triratna International Gathering. They recall that Gathering and how, for each of them, it marked a pivotal moment in their lives - and what they did afterwards.

The conversation then turns to day 2 of the 2019 Triratna International Gathering and what’s been happening. We hear more about the significance of the international dimension - in particular, how coming together in...

Ratnaguna - Transforming Self (Triratna International Gathering 2019)

By Free Buddhist Audio on Sat, 24 Aug, 2019 - 00:22

A wonderful first talk of the 2019 International Gathering, whose theme is ‘Alchemy of the Dharma’. The utterly delightful Ratnaguna takes us through the true miracle of transforming ourselves via the magic of a practice in which we also learn to let ourselves change. 

This is a beautiful, reflective, funny take on the challenges of the Dharma life. Ratnaguna’s breadth of reference is itself a joy: taking in Greek philosophy, Hans Christian Andersen, and writings on the nearness of death to life...

Dedication

By Development Team on Thu, 22 Aug, 2019 - 12:01

The International Gathering 2019 is about to start. 
A team of people have been working joyfully to prepare and set everything up. Each day’s work was started with this dedication-ceremony, created by Polly from verses about Padmasambhava, which expresses the spirit of creating the event and welcoming people to it.

There is no teacher like the Buddha
There is no protector like the Dharma
There is no field like the Sangha

May we follow the Three Jewels with a devotion as...

Podcast - A Gathering of Hearts and Minds

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 2 Jul, 2019 - 17:52

“It’s more than the talks and the meditation and the puja - amazing as I’m sure they’ll all be - it’s also the gathering of hearts and minds, the chatting over cups of tea, the workshops…and just being together in that space.”

The 2019 Triratna International Gathering is fast approaching - it’s a wonderful opportunity for those in our community to come together to share their practice and inspiration and to develop friendships. But what’s it like to...
