Buddha Weekly Online Magazine, published since 2007, takes a topical approach to modern Buddhist feature writing — topics of interest to modern Buddhists, from the multiple points-of-view of many teachers of different traditions.
WHAT THE BUDDHIST TEACHERS SAY
Our writers and editors are senior students who seek out, or research, the opinions of teachers on important Dharma issues, such as: the implications of non-human animal sentience; or palliative care and assisted dying as we all grow older; alternative healing; practice overload in busy, modern lives; internet Dharma.
THE SCIENTIFIC BUDDHIST
Most of our contributors are interested in how science compliments and reinforces Buddhist concepts. We take Dharma topics, often the Buddha's own words, and look how modern science might support ancient truths. We cite research and quote scientists and Buddhist teachers. Past topics have included: meditation for healing, the evidence for rebirth, how to understand emptiness, and why "compassion" should be put on the scientific map.
INTERVIEWS WITH THE TEACHERS
Our newest special series is "Interviews with the Buddhist Teachers". We interview, in person, a well-known teacher. These extensive interviews cover wide-ranging topics — such as Karma, Rebirth, Dharma, Buddhist Deities, Meditation, Healing and more — and are a great way to gain diverse teacher-led insight into important Dharma topics and practices.
ADVICE FROM THE TEACHERS
Buddha Weekly's new "Advice from the Teachers" videos take student questions to teachers for a short 5 minute video-recorded answer. In our first series of ten, teachers respond to questions about Karma, healing for chronic illness, losing a loved one, loss of a beloved pet, keeping motivated in your practice, dealing with memory loss, how to purify negative karma, and other important topics.
