Triratna’s sangha in Barcelona, Spain, bought their first Buddhist Centre last year. Just six weeks from opening they are working hard. They still need to raise €15,000. 

Sugarbha writes: “This is a really exciting project for Triratna Barcelona. Thanks to a legacy donation, in summer 2016 we secured a mortgage and purchased a building to convert into a centre. This is obviously a huge step forward for us, and for Triratna in mainland Europe.

Here is Vidyamala, an order member who lives in Manchester, with her typically succinct and warm style, summing up why she likes being a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order. 

You may know Vidyamala as the founder of Breathworks and she has also written a couple of very well-received books on Mindfulness including ’Living Well with Pain and Illness’

My second gift is a golden net.
Can you recognize it?
My third gift is a shepherds’ round-dance.
Do your feet know how to dance?
My fourth gift is a garden planted in a wilderness.
Could you work there?

A group of us from Exeter and Devon travelled up to the Bristol Buddhist Centre on Saturday 8th April to join in with their celebrations. It was a lovely day and I personally really enjoyed being warmly welcomed by a larger sangha

As part of the day we listened to four short talks on one of Sangharakshita’s poems, Four Gifts: 

I come to you with four gifts. 

The first gift is a lotus flower.
