Buddhist Action Month (BAM) is June.
BAM is UK-wide. BAM is being co-ordinated by the NBO.
Altruistic actions rooted in Buddhism
As before, BAM encourages and celebrates any kind of Buddhist-inspired socially beneficial activity, but the suggested theme is ‘Connecting for Change’. Whatever you choose, it’s significant that your event
- a) brings people together and
- b) is rooted in your teaching and values as Buddhists.
What’s a typical BAM activity?
There isn’t one! There’s a huge range of possibilities, from tree planting to public talks and events at your Buddhist centre or temple. You could decide to register as a Fair Trade Temple, as one Buddhist retreat centre has already done.
