When the pandemic hit in spring 2020 many of us went into immediate lockdowns. As our local Buddhist Centres were forced to close their doors many worked with tremendous resource and ingenuity to move their sanghas online. It really was incredible to see.

The Friend of the World

By Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 18 Oct, 2021 - 00:00
Spiritual friendship is not an added-on part of Going for Refuge, nor is it the Buddhist equivalent to having some mates - rather it is of the essence of the spiritual life and a vital means of communication, emotional development, and meaning - not to mention challenge and enjoyment. But how do we do it and what does it look like? During the 2021 Spiritual Friendship Retreat at Padmaloka, three Order members each gave a talk exploring different aspects of Spiritual Friendship. The talks were given to men training for ordination and Order members. In the third of these talks, Jnanavaca draws out perspectives on the theme in a talk called ‘The Friend of the World’. This talk is part of the series ‘Padmaloka Spiritual Friendship Retreat 2021’.
