Dharmabyte: Working Towards Wisdom

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 22 Aug, 2019 - 14:00

Metta helps us to disentangle our own self involvement to be able to see the bigger picture. We can only really see things clearly with the eyes of Metta. Vijayasri looks to the life of the Buddha and how he responded to the suffering of the world with metta.

This talk entitled Living with Loving Kindness was given at Croydon Buddhist Centre as part of the regular Saturday morning Sangha class, Autumn 2017.

There is no teacher like the Buddha
There is no protector like the Dharma
There is no field like the Sangha

2019 Young Women’s Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 20 Aug, 2019 - 15:25

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the very early days of our Movement when Bhante was on fire about creating the New Society through practicing intensely together in the 3Cs (Communities, Centres and Co-operative Right Livelihood Businesses)? These days they are fewer opportunities for young people to be exposed to all 3 of the ‘C’s at once, which is why, five years ago, Adhisthana set up the Young People’s Dharma Life Course.

Here Taravandana, the coordinator of the...

Dharmabyte: Total Transformation

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 19 Aug, 2019 - 14:00

The word ‘metta’ is untranslatable, not just from a language perspective, but also in that it is best experienced through our own direct experience. Vidyavachin offers reflections on the Metta Sutta in this talk given at the annual sub35 men’s weekend (Young Buddhists) at Padmaloka Retreat Centre in November, 2018. The talk is entitled Radiate Love and is part of a series of the same name.

Meditation: Transform Self and World with Stillness and Simplicity

By Suddhayu on Sun, 18 Aug, 2019 - 19:52

A four week introductory course Sept 11 to Oct 3, 7-9pm.

Meditation is not only a way of cultivating internal integration and contentment, it can be taken up as a form of activism that directly counters rampant consumerism. 

It’s easy to feel disheartened and perhaps even powerless in relation to societal difficulties and the effects of climate change. If we’re conscientious, we tend to make changes in our lives that support a more effective social dialogue, and reduce our environmental footprint. These changes can...
