By Sadayasihi on Fri, 25 Oct, 2019 - 22:21

The 2019 Big One kicks off today! As more and more people arrive we begin to get to settled in…meeting friends old and new, engaging the great Bodhisattva activity of washing up and, of course, dedicating the entire weekend’s practice for the benefit of all beings in the shrine room!

“…while still young, a black-haired young person endowed with the blessings of youth, in the prime of life, I shaved off my hair and beard, put on the yellow robe, and went forth from the home life into homelessness.” - Majjhima Nikaya, 36

2019 Young Women’s Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 20 Aug, 2019 - 15:25

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the very early days of our Movement when Bhante was on fire about creating the New Society through practicing intensely together in the 3Cs (Communities, Centres and Co-operative Right Livelihood Businesses)? These days they are fewer opportunities for young people to be exposed to all 3 of the ‘C’s at once, which is why, five years ago, Adhisthana set up the Young People’s Dharma Life Course.

5 Years of the Buddhist Centre Online: #11 Young Buddhist Project

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 23 Nov, 2018 - 16:39

“For me, just being with other young people… actually this is really important… there’s an energy, there’s a natural friendship, there’s a speaking the Dharma in our own language, in our own time, with our own metaphors, about the life decisions we are currently trying to make” - Singhamati, 2015.
