Ordinations in a Time of Covid-19: Watch Upcoming Public Ordinations Online

Ordinations in a Time of Covid-19: Watch Upcoming Public Ordinations Online

From Triratna News on Tue, 22 Sep, 2020 - 15:42

The impact of the coronavirus has been felt on all aspects of our daily lives as well as the life of our sangha - severely curtailing the ability to hold in-person retreats, including ordination retreats. Ordination is a significant point in the lives of Dharma farers in our community: many of whom have been training for ordination for a number of years, in preparation for joining the Triratna Buddhist Order. The public ordination ceremony marks the deepening of their commitment...

Bhante’s Birthday Puja

Bhante’s Birthday Puja

Tue, 25 Aug, 2020 - 15:26

On Wednesday 26th August, Adhisthana will be celebrating the anniversary of Bhante Sangharakshita’s birthday, as will be happening throughout Triratna. I find it hard to believe that only two years ago Bhante was still alive and would have been enjoying the celebrations at Adhisthana – probably with a vegan coffee and walnut cake that he would share with all those around him.

It is also the day when the Triratna centres continue with the 108 Year Puja that happens every year. I...

Donation to the Buddhist Centre Online

Wed, 13 May, 2020 - 17:08

Since Adhisthana closed, we have been cancelling retreats and refunding those booked on a rolling basis. When contacting people we have also been inviting them to donate their deposit (or more), to be distributed to those Triratna centres and organisations that will need additional help with funding during these uncertain times.

There has been a massive outpouring of generosity from people, and you can see some of the team talking about this in more detail in one of our blog post ‘...

Community members donate to get food to Indian families in lockdown

Wed, 13 May, 2020 - 13:04

A few weeks ago, just after India had abruptly gone into lockdown, Aryajaya brought to the community the story of her friend Abhyanavita.

Abhayanavita did the Adhisthana International Course in 2018, and then returned to her home in Amravati, a city in Maharashtra. She runs a project there with a team of 4 Order Members and 6 Mitras running a hostel to enable vulnerable women and girls to step free of domestic and sexual violence and giving them the tools they need...

In the last of these three short videos showing a conversation between Subhuti and James, Subhuti reflects on what not to do during lockdown, and how we can distract ourselves by using the internet as a means to avoid our present moment experience.
