Una conversación de Parami con un maravillosos grupo de mujeres Venezolanas Mitras de la Comunidad Budista Triratna, hablando de la importancia de la practica del Dharma en un país donde hay una enorme turbulencia política y económica.
Su respuesta es clara: en época de guerra lo que la gente necesita es paz y compasión y esto es precisamente lo que el dharma ofrece. Una evocación conmovedora y urgente desde una perspectiva vital.

The purpose of the Growth Fund is to encourage the growth of the Triratna Community where growth is defined as an increase in the numbers of people coming to us to learn basic meditation and Dharma.
Applications are open to anyone - if you are a chair or lead a Triratna Group you might well have a project in mind yourself; or know of initiatives around your Centre, Group and Sangha that would benefit from a grant from the...
Continuing our series of in-depth conversations with Buddhists in Mexico, here is the irrepressible Upeksamati: Dharma pioneer in his homeland and founder of the Mexico City Buddhist Center.
We hear of his own Buddhist training in England in the 1980s and ’90s and how that influenced his approach to bringing what he learned back home again. We get, in effect, a crash course in the essentials of starting a new Buddhist Center - at scale, and with ambition!
Updated April 26th 2017 to fix some broken links in PDF version.
From the introduction We’ve assembled this FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) in response to questions people have asked about historical controversy and unskilful behaviour in FWBO/Triratna, and the ways these are sometimes represented online. The main intention is to provide, in good faith, information we believe to be accurate. We wish to represent what are often complex issues in a fair-minded way without over simplifying, aware that other views...
I’m keen to encourage more open discussion of climate change and the ethical issues it brings with it. I’ve facilitated a few sessions with Triratna groups on this topic, so have put together some notes for anyone who wants to hold a short workshop on this topic. Alongside this, I’m going to put together a short video on climate change and why it matters to Buddhists, which I will post here soon.
Summer time is here and we’re pleased to announce a new issue of our magazine, The London Buddhist, and a fresh programme of events. Whether you’re just starting to explore meditation and Buddhism or have been coming to the centre for years, we hope there’ll be something to catch your imagination. Enjoy!

Sanghadhara at the UK Northern region event in Sheffield to mark the 50th anniversary of Triratna as a Buddhist community. Talking to Dharmamayi and Moksatara (Padmasagara couldn’t make it!). Catching up on highlights from the day, and reflecting on what it’s like as younger Order members to hear stories from “the old days”.
For the second year running for BAM I’ll be offering a free meditation & Buddhism course in Istanbul called, “Saving the Earth” based on Akuppa’s book. I’ve designed a 6 week course for regulars that can be used for English speaking Triratna centres and groups. The book is now 8-9 years old but I also include more up to date material written last year by Tejopala. There are just a few copies of the book left by e-books are available. If...
