Dharmabyte: A Single Slash of Anger

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 17 Oct, 2019 - 14:00

Hatred or ill-will arises when something gets in the way of something we desire. From a mild irritation at being inconvenienced, to violent anger, competitiveness, jealousy, all are forms of ill-will.

Khemasuri explores the theme of anger in Santideva’s Bodhicaryavatara at Sangha Night, Sheffield Buddhist Centre. Excerpted from the talk entitled Gratitude to Everyone given on 15th April 2008. Part of a series on Great Buddhist Texts.

Five myths about the Abhayaratna Trust

By The Abhayaratna... on Wed, 16 Oct, 2019 - 16:25

1. That we have central funding from the movement to support Order members; 

       We don’t! We’re a separate charity solely relying on your individual donations to help care for individual Order members needing support. We don’t fund institutions or Dharma projects.

2. That we are here to help elderly Order members only; 

   Not so! We’re here for Order members of any age who request support. If it appears otherwise, that’s because when we started 11 years ago we imagined it would only...

Dharmabyte: Patience, Pride and Evil Actions

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 14 Oct, 2019 - 14:00

Here Vairocana shares thoughts on patience, pride and evil actions as described in the Bodhicaryavatara, verse 21. Shantideva reflects that compassion arises upon seeing the suffering of the world and that this manifests in one loosening ones pride. This leads to a fear of the consequences of evil and a delight in Enlightenment itself, or as Shantideva puts it, delight in the Conquerors.

From the talk The Section on Evil from the Dhammapada given at Glasgow...

Art retreat led Dh Guhyacitta from 11th to 13th Oct 19. In this retreat try explore Art as Views, Experience And Consciousness. We also got chance to hear Golap poetry, which was uplifting experience. हलत्या प्रतिमेचा हलताच अर्थ होईल असे होत नाही…. यथार्थाताचा अर्थ शोधतांना, अर्थाचे कवच गळून पडले… परिधानतेचा परिप्रेक्ष शेषाकडून नामशेषाकडे वळून नम्र झाला…. डोळ्यांच्या आकारापेक्षा दृश्याचा व्यास...
