Seeking a new Chair for the Melbourne Buddhist Centre

Chairs' Letter – March 2021

By ratnadharini on Wed, 31 Mar, 2021 - 15:23

Dear Order members and friends,

The main international College meeting is in November and this year we are also meeting for a weekend in March and July, as well as parallel gatherings in our individual College Kulas. (The Kula system is intentionally flexible, to allow for the different number of people training for ordination in different parts of the world, as well as the geographic spread of Public Preceptors in each Kula.) 

Apart from the option...

The Church of England and independent Safeguarding

By ECA Safeguarding on Wed, 31 Mar, 2021 - 09:51

Over the last few years there have sometimes been calls for Triratna’s Safeguarding to be overseen by a body outside Triratna. This report from the UK’s Church Times offers more insight into why this is nearly impossible for any UK organisation, so far at least.

In response to investigation of failures to prevent child sexual abuse over many decades the Church of England is seeking to ensure its Safeguarding services are provided by a body which cannot be ‘frustrated’...

Public Preceptor Appointment: Yashodeva

By akasajoti on Sun, 28 Mar, 2021 - 18:25

Dear friends

I’m delighted to say that the College of Public Preceptors has appointed Yashodeva as a Public Preceptor. 

Yashodeva was ordained in 1981 and is now 59. He lived at Guhyaloka for 12 years, which is where he began working with men who were training for ordination, and has continued to be involved with GFR retreats in Spain since moving to Adhisthana eight years ago. He conducted his first ordination in 1999, and is now private preceptor to four men and kalyanamitra...
