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. 


Zoe found Triratna at the Nottingham centre when she was a student, and since moving back to Singapore has returned to the UK to attend retreats at Tiratanaloka,

Ordination at Padmaloka

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Wed, 29 Mar, 2017 - 09:12

We are delighted to announce that on Tuesday March 28th at 2.30pm Jyotipala was publicly ordained at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, UK.

Jyotipala means ‘He who protects the light’.

His public ordination was performed by Padmavajra.

With metta,
Manjusiha

This ordination marks Jyotipala’s re-entry into the Order. Jyotipala was the first person to be ordained at Padmaloka in 1976 - with Sangharakshita as private preceptor. Sometime in the mid to late nineties, Jyotipala resigned from the Order. Unusually, he was not privately ordained...

Following on from his statement of personal regret about the publication of ‘Women, Men And Angels’ and the views expressed in it, here is Subhuti in conversation with Maitreyi, going into detail around that regret, and sharing his thoughts on a very painful episode in Triratna history, including the story of how it all happened. What emerges in the course of the interview is an exemplary look by two good, old friends at how confusion can arise - and how clear...

A Garden of Impressions

Posted by dharmalata to Coogee Buddhist Group on Tue, 28 Mar, 2017 - 00:42

In Men’s study at the Sydney Buddhist Centre we’re exploring a book titled ‘Finding the Mind’ by one of our order members by the name of Ratnaprabha.


He takes up the central quest of Buddhism to know and understand the mind. Mind is seen as key if we are to have a happy and fulfilling life. In fact the seminal and very early text ‘The Dhammapada’ starts by saying that every experience we have of life is determined by the...

This is the first of a series of talks from The Rainy Season Retreat 2017 at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre. Suriyavamsa looks at our dharma practice as a workable situation in a broken world. He draws on lyrics by Leonard Cohen, poems by Sangharakshita and William Blake, quotes from Chogyam Trungpa and Suzuki Roshi and the image of the Taj Mahal. Please excuse the bootleg sound quality.
