Big One 2019: Preview of Keynote Talk 'Blueprint for New Society'

By Sadayasihi on Sun, 27 Oct, 2019 - 00:15

Moksatara gave a wonderfully inspiring keynote talk on ‘Blueprint for a New Society’ - exploring why we have spiritual community, how we can build it and the effect of having it. She finished her talk with a reminder that we can all be hands or arms of Avalokiteshvara - and we can become friends to the world.

Full Dharma talk to follow soon!

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 26 Oct, 2019 - 23:41

The Avalokiteshvara mantra featured during the Saturday night puja at the Big One 2019. Earlier in the day Moksatara reminded us in her talk on the theme of ‘Blueprint for A New Society’ of the importance of sangha, and how we can all become hands or arms of the thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

“When I went on those first Young Buddhist retreats I saw a future for Buddhism in my life..”

Suzie from Manchester and Dharmasara from Berlin talk about their involvement in the Young Buddhist project. From gaining more confidence as a...

“…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.

Here Taravandana, the coordinator of the...

Dharmabyte: Total Transformation

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 19 Aug, 2019 - 14:00

The word ‘metta’ is untranslatable, not just from a language perspective, but also in that it is best experienced through our own direct experience. Vidyavachin offers reflections on the Metta Sutta in this talk given at the annual sub35 men’s weekend (Young Buddhists) at Padmaloka Retreat Centre in November, 2018. The talk is entitled Radiate Love and is part of a series of the same name.
