How has meditation helped you?
As part of the Amadale group's 29th anniversary celebrations we are collecting contributions for a book on the benefits of meditation.
Invitation for submissions to the next issue of the Enlightened Times newsletter
The Enlightened Times is coming back! A new and improved version of the BSWA newsletter, the Enlightened Times, is under construction.
Regular Contributors (to attend events and interview Sangha) and one-off submissions (about anything) are invited from the BSWA community (overseas members, regular visitors to the monasteries, all cultural groups, JG, the Armadale group, friends of BSWA etc). Articles should either inform or entertain the BSWA community and may be about anything to do with the BSWA, activities, Sangha, dhamma or experiences. We are also looking for jokes, cartoons, photographs or anything else!
Advertisements will not be considered at this time and the editor may refuse to publish any article that is not consistent with BSWA interests or the dhamma.
The ET is also looking for an assistant editor! Any experience level considered and English does not need to be your first language.
New Presidents Welcome
Problem playing chanting and meditation MP3s
We've recently changed to a new delivery platform, but and unfortunate side effect appears to be that some people are only able to play talks on their computer.
We're looking into this matter and hope to have a resolution soon.
Recent changes to SoundCloud have also meant that the 'Taking the 5 Precepts' audio on the Dhammaloka Community is not working correctly. We're also working to fix this.
