The outbreak of COVID-19 is a graphic reminder of the interconnectedness of all life. It is also a reminder to apply the Buddha’s teachings to respond with kindness, clarity and fearlessness. We have collected some of the best resources to help you navigate and keep these ideals alive during these challenging times.
The Buddhist Centre Online are releasing lots of online content including:
- Online Meditations which are 45 minutes long and unguided. Every day at 4:30pm and 11:30pm Sydney time.
- A Daily Podcast with a diverse range of guests and voices.
- Home Retreats starting with “Sailing the Worldly Winds: A Buddhist Way Through the Ups and Downs of Life”.
- Links to other centres and individuals offering online content including online meditations, talks, courses, pūjās, yoga and more.
Many of our friends around the world have recorded some video talks responding to the current situation. We will curate some of our favourites here - check back regularly for more, or see what others are sharing on The Buddhist Centre Online's Community Toolkit.
