Celebrating our 50th year, Triratna Buddhist Community is a truly international Sangha. Zoe Lim is the only mitra training for Ordination in Singapore. Liz Bassett, from FutureDharma Fund, caught up with her friend to talk about her life and why she loves The Buddhist Centre Online - one of the many projects to receive funding from FutureDharmaFund this year.

His public ordination was performed by Padmavajra.
With metta, Manjusiha

This Sunday, March 26, 10AM - 12:30PM, we will continue our exploration of the stages of the spiritual path. Led by Dh. Rijupatha, we will practice the Metta Bhavana, or Loving Kindness meditation. Then we will turn our attention to the second stage or aspect of spiritual development, positive emotion. Once we have set ourselves on the path, this is the quality of being and acting that enables us to follow that path wherever it leads. With positive emotion, we...
