How I'm Remembering to Remember - Sailing the Worldly Winds Home Retreat Day 3

By Sadayasihi on Sun, 5 Apr, 2020 - 14:02

In these times, when so much is going on - when there’s a constant flow of information and the situation is seemingly changing by the hour - it can feel hard to maintain one’s practice. It can be hard to not be blown about by the worldly winds. 

I’ve been acutely aware of the extremes of my responses to even the smallest of things these past few days: joy at the sunlight streaming in the window, at exchanging smiles with a stranger...

Truthfulness As a Teacher - Sailing the Worldly Winds Home Retreat, Day Two

Truthfulness As a Teacher - Sailing the Worldly Winds Home Retreat, Day Two

By kusaladevi on Sat, 4 Apr, 2020 - 14:00

Truthfulness has always been very important to me. It’s something which I valued long before I came across the Dharma. So I was quite struck when Vajragupta suggested the opportunity to practice truthfulness when the winds of Praise and Blame are blowing. Praise and Blame are the Worldly winds I notice most in my experience, or perhaps the ones I am blown about by most strongly.

So I started to reflect on this - how might truthfulness help me when...

FBA Podcast: Sangha as the Way to the End of Dukkha

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 4 Apr, 2020 - 14:00

Instead of the traditional description of the Fourth Noble Truth - the Eightfold Path - Saccanama  explores Sangha as a means to counter the individualism of our times. What exactly is the true meaning of Sangha? And how can the mysterious ‘third order of consciousness’ or Bodhicitta help us to transcend our preoccupation with ourselves? He looks at three stories from Buddhist tradition that explore the true meaning of Sangha - the Anuruddhas, the Pure Land and the...

Bodhicitta - The Highly Potent Elixir of Transformation

By Satyakirti on Sat, 4 Apr, 2020 - 12:13

“Taking this image of the human form the Bodhicitta transmutes it into the priceless image of the Jewel of the Conqueror. Grasp tightly this highly potent elixir, known as the Bodhicitta, which must be thoroughly worked.”

In his first talk on Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara, given on a day retreat to the Padmaloka community, Padmavajra speaks of Sangharakshita’s evocation of the Bodhicitta. He goes on to talk about his discovery of the Bodhicarayavatara and what is known of the life of Shantideva. The main...

Apoyando Suryavana :: Supporting Suryavana

By Sudaka on Sat, 4 Apr, 2020 - 06:34

Amigos de Suryavana no creo que haga falta explicar la situación que estamos viviendo a nivel internacional. Empresas, instituciones y asociaciones de todo tipo están cerrando y paralizando sus actividades para poder frenar esta pandemia que nos está afectando a todos.

Suryavana es un centro de retiros, por lo tanto, su idiosincrasia es el estar con personas, junto a personas, conviviendo con personas, juntas y en contacto, en estrecha relación durante horas, días. Esto significa que no hay posibilidad de poder realizar...

The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 10 - Covid Emergency in India (A Home Retreat Appeal)

By Candradasa on Sat, 4 Apr, 2020 - 00:12

I confess, when I sat down to record this podcast yesterday I somehow didn’t expect it to have the impact it did. I’d seen all the news stories, shaken my head, wondered at how human beings can meet such complex, painful realities as what’s unfolding in India right now. But here they were - my friends - talking about what I can do about it. What you can do too. 

We’re spending a week - in whatever ways we can manage...
