Notes from an Appealing Buddhist

By Shakyapada on Sat, 1 Jun, 2013 - 23:13Day 3: Out on the Streets

It’s the end of the first week and we’ve all survived. Unfortunately two of our team - Amitasuri and Jamie - have been poorly and therefore unable to join us on the first few days of the Karuna door-knocking appeal. However we’re hoping that they’ll both be fit and well very soon.

Retreat med Maitreyabandhu

Retreat med Maitreyabandhu

By Viryabodhi on Sun, 12 May, 2013 - 20:22Under en fyradagars retreat i maj 2013 Dharmagiri, gav Maitreyabandhu fyra seminarier om ”De fem stadierna i det andliga livet” så som dom förstås och utövas inom Triratna. Han hämtar inspiration till stor del från den undervisning som Sangharakshita och Subhuti givit under senare år. Maitreyabandhu bidrar själv med en otroligt levande framställning och konkretiserar temana på ett sätt som blev mycket uppskattat på retreaten, och säkert kommer att uppskattas av många fler. Här är länkar till seminerierna i den...

The Making of Seven Papers by Subhuti with Sangharakshita

By Candradasa on Fri, 12 Apr, 2013 - 22:27If you haven’t seen it yet you can now get hold of a definitive collection of seven papers by Subhuti with Sangharakshita, outlining and reaffirming the approach to the Dharma that underpins the Triratna Buddhist Community. It’s a rather magisterial undertaking, even by Subhuti’s standards, and worth celebrating as both an important source text for Triratna and as a spur to conversation and debate within the community at large.

Quite apart from all the sustained work that...
