There is an old English saying:
“Sow a thought, reap an action. Sow an action, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, reap a destiny”.

In October 2018, Adhisthana offered its first International Retreat in order to form connections between those holding responsibility within Triratna all over the world, and to offer the participants further training and skills in their positions.

We have exciting news.
Our production team, led by Michelle, has been hard at work on four meaningful new books for 2019. These books focus on inner reflection and transformation.
If you feel these books are important to you and the world, please consider sponsoring a book. It is a difficult time for independent publishers to stay afloat. Help and support from our readers goes a long way.
A dedicated teacher of the Dharma and a prolific author, the words of Sangharakshita live on through his Order and community, recorded talks and books.

The Complete Works of Sangharakshita include all his previously published work, as well as talks, seminars and writings published for the first time. Eight volumes have been published, and there are nineteen more to come.
Mardi soir, le 30 octobre, nous avons fait une cérémonie pour honorer Bhante au Centre bouddhiste de Paris.
Devant un autel fait pour représenter divers aspects de sa vie, nous avons médité, chanté des mantras et partagé nos sentiments et nos réflexions suite à son décès.
Le goût prédominant était celui de la gratitude et de l’appréciation pour tout ce que nous avons reçu de Bhante, et la conscience que c’est à nous maintenant de porter le flambeau précieux des Trois joyaux qu’il nous...
C’est avec une grande tristesse que nous annonçons le décès le 30 octobre 2018 de Sangharakshita, le fondateur de l’Ordre bouddhiste Triratna et de la Communauté bouddhiste Triratna. Voici une brève présentation de sa vie et de ses enseignements.
Les premières années Sangharakshita est né sous le nom de Dennis Lingwood dans une famille ouvrière, à Tooting, au sud de Londres, en 1925. À l’âge de neuf ans, on lui diagnostiqua un problème cardiaque (ce qui plus tard s’avéra être un diagnostic...
