North Cyprus meditation group

Fri, 27 Oct, 2017 - 22:37

Barrie writes with news of a Triratna meditation group in North Cyprus, saying - “Hello.  I have been living in North Cyprus for 2 years and have been running a meditation class twice a week at my house for 18 months.

I have been a mitra ( formerly from Cardiff) for 10 years and asked for ordination 7 years ago.

I am aware of 2 mitras in South Cyprus but if anyone wants to meditate or study...

I have studied with Suvarnagarbha via Skype for at least 4 years now and I can highly recommend him! Bodhinaga

In my fourth year of study with Suvarnagarbha I am still inspired by the depth of knowledge he expresses of the Dharma. Suvarnagarbha has an uncanny skill of balancing our Skype group of four very different people, providing just the right Dharma sutra or objective reflection to help each one of us come to a greater understanding of the study material. I feel very fortunate to study and develop with Suvarnagarbha.

I’ve not studied with Suvarnagarbha myself but I know several people who have, and they all speak very highly of the experience. Highly recommended.

Tuning in to Triratna Dharma talks

Fri, 14 Jun, 2013 - 09:52The Triratna Buddhist Community has a fabulous on-line library of audio Dharma talks hosted at Free Buddhist Audio. They have well over 1,000 talks from Buddhist centres around the world. But if that’s a bit overwhelming (where exactly should you start?!) they also run two weekly Podcasts - FBA Talks and Dharmabytes. The first is a recommended talk chosen by the FBA team; the second,...

Level II material - introducing Triratna's System of Practice

Mon, 29 Apr, 2013 - 16:43
Here’s some ‘level II’ material for the ‘Triratna Anywhere’ project. They are a series of eight talks by Maitreyabandhu, an experienced teacher from the London Budhdist Centre, in which he introduces Triratna’s System of Practice to a packed audience. The talks are very ‘live’, personal, slightly off-the-cuff - and brilliant…!

Taken together they cover the five stages in Triratna’s system of practice - integration, positive emotion, spiritual death, ...

Introductions To Meditation

Sat, 2 Mar, 2013 - 23:16
It’s easy to get started with Buddhist Meditation: all you need is a chair (or meditation cushion) and a download link. We suggest starting with one of the guided meditations below: choose which you’d like, sit down somewhere quiet, press “play” and introduce yourself to meditation. Using guided meditations is a good way to get started for anyone who can’t make it to a Triratna Centre.

If that goes well, next time you can invite someone you...

And their first meeting is January 3rd at 4.30pm UK time (11.30am EST, 10pm Maharashtra). They say - “Join us if you can...

'Triratna Anywhere'

Fri, 21 Sep, 2012 - 18:05
‘Triratna Anywhere’ has been created! I hope it will encourage and support people where ever they live in the world to get involved and bring Triratna Buddhism to where they live! Here is a World Map of Triratna I found. Hopefully soon we will have an interactive map of who’s involved with this project in different parts of the world.

Aloha –

I just wanted to let you know that if you are from the Big Island or other parts of Hawaii and would like to know more about the Triratna Buddist Community, I’d be happy to talk with you. I’ve been a GFR mitra for many years and have frequent contact with the San Francisco Buddhist Center, the Seattle Buddhist Center and Aryaloka. I’m a frequent Skyper and am exploring Google Hangout, so I am pretty easily available. I’ve taught the beginners’ meditation class as well as the Intro to Buddhism.

Love & metta,
Nora Beck Judd
