Non-Residential Going for Refuge Training Course for Young Men.

Mon, 4 Feb, 2019 - 18:05


In a creative initiative from our ordination teams in India, young men are now able to join an 18 month non-residential training course. 72 young men study 6 major themes in the city environment, and go on retreat for a more meditative experience. The men are befriended and undertake written projects and speakers’ classes, receiving feedback throughout the course.  The aim is to provide a thorough Dhamma training for young men unable to go on extended retreats.

New Mitra Study Module on Dr Ambedkar!

Thu, 22 Nov, 2018 - 11:47

We have a new Mitra study module on Dr Ambedkar! Check it out in Year 3, Module 8

About half the total Triratna Buddhist Community (friends and mitras) and a third of the Triratna Buddhist Order is in India. There is much that is shared throughout the whole Movement, including our basic teachings and practices, but one noticeable difference is the emphasis on Dr Ambedkar. At every class and on every retreat in India you will find on the...

Dhamma Revolution Retreat at Adhisthana 17-19 November

Tue, 1 Aug, 2017 - 11:22

‘After my contact with Dr Ambedkar and his followers I became much more aware of the social dimension of Buddhism and, in fact, the social dimension of life itself’

Dr Ambedkar is, in Sangharakshita’s terminology, one of the greatest Buddhists of the 20th century and a profound influence on Sangharakshita’s life and thought. Deeply committed to the uplift of the most marginalised communities in India, Dr Ambedkar saw the Dhamma as a means of individual and social transformation. This...

We have a new opportunity to support Dhamma work in India by joining the India Dhamma Trust team as a trustee treasurer. A third of our Order and roughly half of the Movement is in India with a fraction of the resources we have in the UK.  There are an estimated 10 million people who have embraced Buddhism, but who need guidance from a committed Sangha on how to deepen their practice.  Would you like to make a significant...
