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

Posted 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....

Buddhism at work in the World

Buddhism at work in the World

Posted by Prajnaketu on Wed, 27 Jun, 2018 - 10:52

From Sally at Lama’s Pyjamas

What does the Buddha say about work? What is Triratna’s way of translating this into practice? What’s it like working in a Buddhist business? 

You are warmly invited to join us for a day exploring what it means to work as Buddhists in the modern world, Sunday 8 July, at the London Buddhist Centre. 

Watch this new Clear Vision film about Lama’s Pyjamas and Triratna’s unique approach to Right Livelihood for a taste of this special event.

As the Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention in Valencia draws nearer, three ‘Young Buddhists’ from Valencia share a bit about their inspiration to practice the Dharma and how they have benefitted.

Estela:

“Last year I attended the meeting of Young Buddhists in Berlin. It was an incredible experience! I met young people from other countries, and it surprised me that we could connect really well despite cultural differences.

The atmosphere was very nice, open and fun. We had really...

Saddhanandi on Responsibility Q&A

Posted by Prajnaketu on Mon, 16 Apr, 2018 - 15:19

In this Q&A session with the young facilitators, Saddhanandi explores with great depth and humour the topic of responsibility - How do we learn from mistakes? How do we measure success? When do we act as individuals and when as group members? How does spiritual growth manifest in action? And so many more pithy teachings!

Created by Prajnaketu on Tue, 23 Feb, 2016 - 15:03

This is the portal for all young facilitators to share resources, ideas and inspirations. It’s envisaged as a knowledge pool for members of the kula to draw on to take their young Buddhist group to the next level, and a way of rejoicing in what’s going well.

So what has worked for you? The sorts of things that you could post are:

  • Ideas for themes
  • Publicity images/strategies
  • Recordings/videos of talks
  • Photos
  • Retreat ideas
  • Quick updates on how your last event went
  • Upcoming plans
  • Questions and challenges
  • Whatever you think will help others and keep a connection within this kula…

Share away!
