The Organic Core of Sangharakshita's Teaching by Vishvapani

Mon, 31 Oct, 2022 - 18:28

Vishvapani has been studying, reflecting upon, and living out the Dharma life as presented by Urgyen Sangharakshita, Triratna’s founding teacher, for over 40 years. To mark the fourth anniversary of “Bhante” Sangharakshita’s death in 2018, this new talk delves deep into the heart of what Vishvapani calls a “unique and strange” intuitive approach to Buddhism that, at its best, seems to capture and...

The Race Conversation with Eugene Ellis and Bodhilila - Live from London, Monday November 21

Wed, 19 Oct, 2022 - 01:42

Is it possible not to be confused about race? Is it possible to respond authentically to the hurt and discomfort of racism?

Reserve your space online

The construct of race is an integral part of Western society’s DNA and if we are to address the social injustice of racism, we need to have the race conversation. Yet all too often, attempts at such a dialogue are met with silence, denial, anger or hate. Eugene Ellis’ wonderful book actively supports anyone striving...

***

The Heart Sutra is one of the most familiar of all Buddhist texts and, inevitably, there are innumerable takes on ‘what it means’. How do we square the opening statement that the skandhas (our psycho–physical constituents) are ‘empty’ with the following one that ‘in emptiness’ there are no skandhas,...

Seeing It Better: A Review of 'After Cézanne' by Maitreyabandhu

Seeing It Better: A Review of 'After Cézanne' by Maitreyabandhu

Thu, 21 Apr, 2022 - 17:26

After Cézanne,
By Maitreyabandhu,
Bloodaxe, 2019

Review by Vishvapani
Maitreyabandhu’s most recent poetry collection reflects on Cézanne’s paintings and is a subtle meditation on the possibilities of art and perception

The epigraph of Maitreyabandhu’s most recent collection After Cézanne is a quote from a letter the artist sent to Emile Bernard in 1904: ‘Talking about art is virtually useless.’ That challenges the fifty-plus poems in the collection, which all relate directly or indirectly to Cézanne’s painting and are generously...

The Sound of One Hand
By Satyadasa
Yakhorn Press, 2022

Like Satyadasa I’ve been a part of the Triratna Buddhist Community for the whole of my adult life. He’s about a decade younger than me, but many of the Triratna experiences he describes in The Sound of One Hand are shared. Like me, David (as Satyadasa is called up to his ordination) grew up in the middle-class South London suburbs and had an Oxbridge education before pitching into...
