A series of conversations amongst panels of Order members talking about race from their personal experience. It’s hoped that as many institutions are reflecting on systemic racism, we as a Buddhist community can reflect on how we can make Triratna more diverse, and our sanghas more reflective of the populations that live where some of our centers are situated.
The next conversation will feature Order members of mixed culture and race. It will take place on September 26th at 11:00 PST | 13:00 México | 14:00 ...
Vimalasara read “I am Africa” from her recently published book of poems, I Am Still Your Negro: An Homage to James Baldwin, published by University of Alberta Press. It’s available at your favorite online book sellers, and on order from local independent bookstores.
On 25 June, from 19.00-21.00 (UK), Subhuti will be in conversation with Suryagupta, the Chair of the London Buddhist Centre, on the topic of race, caste and Buddhism. They will explore the themes personally, arriving at a distinctively Dharmic approach to race and Buddhism, with time for you to ask questions via the chat facility on their YouTube Livestream. All are invited to join the LBC Sangha for what promises to be a memorable and significant evening.
