Dharma Talk: Creating Sangha from Within

By Sadayasihi on Sun, 8 Jul, 2018 - 14:14

Is there an inner attitude we can adopt that will naturally lead to the creation of Sangha? Satyadhara poses this question - and addresses it - in his talk on the second Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention. He shares his personal experience of being in a small Sangha near Frankfurt in Germany, and draws upon Asangha’s Yogacharabhumi to explore the conditions necessary for building Sangha.

Talk given on the second Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention in Valencia, Spain, in July 2018.

Dharma Talk: The Nature of Inner Peace - Creating Sangha from Within

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 7 Jul, 2018 - 14:42

Sadayasihi explores the theme of the second Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention: ‘The Nature of Inner Peace: Creating Sangha from Within’. She looks at what peace is and then, using Sangharakshita’s aphorism ‘peace is a fire’ considers three things this might mean and how these three dimensions of peace might be of use in creating Sangha.

Talk given on the second Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention in Valencia, Spain, in July 2018.
