To appreciate the significance of the 25th Anniversary of the Triratna's sole retreat center in America, Nagabodhi takes us back 2500 years to the time of the Buddha through the early years of the movement right up to the present day and onwards into the future.

What is the heartwood of Aryaloka? Dayalocana, Aryaloka's Chair, offers fourteen stories that illustrate the heartwood of the Buddhist Center, it's inner core, strength, and beauty. Celebrating 25 years of Dharma practice, Aryaloka is situated on a street named Heartwood Circle, giving her good cause to reflect on The Simile of the Heartwood, from the Majjhima Nikaya.

Going For Refuge to the Dharma

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Sun, 1 Dec, 2013 - 00:00
Part 3 of a 4-part series. An excellent talk from Dhammarati on the Dharma Jewel, with an emphasis on the practical and experiential. Pratitya samutpada is not a view, but a verifiable fact of our experience. This conditionality implies a natural current in reality that unfolds towards liberation.

Dhammarati explores how the Triratna System of Practice supports this process of unfolding by setting up the conditions for something new to emerge.
