From Ireland to New Zealand and back again (One World, One Sangha)

By Liz_Bassett on Fri, 22 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

Although she’s originally from New Zealand, Celia has lived in Dublin for 14 years. She’s a member of the Dublin Sangha and loves the Dharma classes there.

In spring 2020 Celia travelled to New Zealand on what she thought would be a 2-week trip to see her family. But New Zealand went into lockdown and she found herself stranded on the other side of the world from her life back in Dublin, Ireland.

It was a really tough time for Celia. She needed to find...

When your local sangha is online (One World, One Sangha)

By Liz_Bassett on Thu, 21 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

In yesterday’s post we shared Alex’s experience of being able to reach out online, along with his sangha in Brazil, and practice with our international Sangha. 

Zoe lives in Singapore, and unlike Alex, doesn’t have a local sangha. In fact Zoe is the only practising member of Triratna in Singapore. Her nearest sanghas are in Australia and India! Despite this Zoe is a Mitra and is training for Ordination.  

We all know the importance of having a local sangha where we can study and practice and share...

Being part of our International Sangha (One World, One Sangha)

Alex lives in Sao Paulo Brazil. He loves being part his sangha and helps Manjupriya, the only Order member in Brazil, run their activities. Theirs is the only Triratna sangha in Brazil. In fact their nearest neighbours are our Sangha in Merida, Venezuela - 2,700 miles away!  

Being able to take part in International Sangha Day: A Festival of Light was an unexpected and precious opportunity for Alex and his sangha. It’s not possible for him to travel from Brazil to go on...

A Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times (One World, One Sangha)

By Liz_Bassett on Tue, 19 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

When the pandemic hit in spring 2020 many of us went into immediate lockdowns. As our local Buddhist Centres were forced to close their doors many worked with tremendous resource and ingenuity to move their sanghas online. It really was incredible to see.

The Buddhist Centre Online team responded with a gift to our Sangha in the form of the Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times. This almost magical resource of podcasts, talks, retreats, courses, and live meditation sessions...
