A Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times
This is a website set up by TheBuddhistCentre.com to support you in finding the Dharma resources you need to stay connected and inspired when you’re at home and more apart than usual from your friends and loved ones. And to explore how online community and practice can be an antidote to some of the likely issues you may face during an extended shutdown (and which the web doesn’t always help!): misinformation, anxiety, an increased sense of isolation.

During the COVID-9 pandemic Windhorse Publications will give away a free Buddhist eBook each week.
This week’s free eBook is Solitude and Loneliness: A Buddhist View. The author, Sarvananda, shows us how to “train in the capacity to be alone” in order to enjoy solitude and “realise how essentially connected to others we truly are.” Prajnaketu writes: ‘This book seems to have been written for these times - beautiful, wise, funny, and practical. If, like me, the movies and rolling news are already wearing a bit thin for you, I highly recommend this as a perspective on how to do self-isolation better.’
