The first knock

I was already late. And it was hot. Very hot. Indian hot. The adrenaline had taken me so far but now my legs were palpably wobbling as I approached the last bend before my destination. The hasty bowl of muesli rumbled restlesslessly in my stomach, rising and falling as the urge to vomit repeatedly came and subsided… Hold it together man… 

I’ve been here before - exams, big talks, lesson observations when I was a trainee teacher - and deep down I know...

Sooo… I’ve just started a six-week fundraising appeal in London with these wonderful people (Mike, Declan, Chris, Ramesh Babar, Vajragupta, and Kusaladevi Spence)! We’re going to be raising money for an amazing charity called Karuna which helps to transform the lives of individuals and communities affected by the tyrannical caste system in India and Nepal. 

We’ve all now arrived and are settling into community we’ll be living in together. For most of us, this is the first time we’ve done anything like this...

Dharmabyte: Tethered to Fiction

Posted by Sadayasihi to Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 23 Jul, 2018 - 12:24

This FBA Dharmabyte podcast is called ‘Tethered to Fiction’ by Arthabandhu.

Spiritual death does not only mean esoteric meditation practices, it means confronting the vagaries and difficulties of life with honesty and courage and seeing what we can learn from them. By opening up to new experiences life becomes more vivid and enjoyable - if we can just face the fear.

From the talk, ‘The Sea As Spiritual Death’, given at...

This Dharmabyte podcast, ‘The Sea As Spiritual Death’, is an excerpt from a talk of the same name by Arthabandhu who explores the image of the sea and the raft.  We hold onto our raft, but this brings suffering - can we let go, enter the sea and become spiritually reborn?
