Introduction from the Summer 2022 edition:
This blog is a gesture. It documents our evolving commitment, individually and collectively as a San Francisco Buddhist Center sangha, to Equity, Diversity, Justice, and Inclusivity. EDJI.
As Buddhists in the Triratna tradition, we practice mindfulness and compassion. We learn that all things are interconnected, that we are interconnected. How can we draw on our Buddhist practice to be a kind presence in the world? How can we become more curious and responsive? How can we meet hatred with love?
In Buddhist iconography, the Buddha Green Tara sits with one leg folded in meditation, while the other leg steps out into the world, one hand at her heart, the other hand reaching out. How could this form, these gestures, this mudra, inform our Buddhist practice? How can we embody both stillness and movement, responding to the cries of the world with Right Action? How can we inspire this in one another?
Here we are documenting efforts by members of our SFBC community to embrace liberation for all beings: how we are collaborating, what we are studying, what we are learning. We are opening up the EDJI circle and invite you to step in. What are you interested in? What are you learning? What would you like to know more about? Let's gather with EDJI in the forefront of our minds.
