This week's free eBook and much more!

Dharmabyte: Infinite Spaces + Boundless Awareness

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 6 Jul, 2020 - 14:00

“The creative mind loves when there is no reason to love.” Sangharakshita

Viryajyoti gives the second talk in a series on Compassion for a Modern Word on a theme close to her heart. The Bodhisattva aim is to free all beings from suffering – what about here and now in the 21st century? What is radical kindness? What would it be like to be radically kind?

You will have seen and perhaps given to Triratna and other fundraising appeals for India in recent weeks due to the effect of Covid-19. The Abhayaratna Trust launched a specific appeal a few weeks ago to raise 600,000 rupees so that we can make 6,000 rupee grants (approximately £60) to 100 individual Order members in India.

We are asking you to give £60 to directly support an individual Order member and their family...

I will meet you there.

When the soul lies down

in that grass

the world is too full

to speak of

ideas, language even the notion

Following the success of our first on-line retreat we are delighted to offer another opportunity to come together as a virtual practice community.

The retreat will take this famous Rumi verse as a loose structure to investigate what it means...
