Q. There’s no shortage of Dharma materials available online, right? So why is the buddhistcentre.com so important?

It brings us together. Regardless of where we live we can share a wealth of news, video, talks and led meditations. It’s an online space where we can communicate, learn, and support each other in our practice - even attend a mitra ceremony!

Dear friends, Vajranatha, and the Triratna Sangha in Venezuela, needs our help! 

At the recent European chairs meeting Vajrnatha, the only order member in Venezuela, spoke movingly about the situation in Venezuela, and Merida, where he lives.

Hi Dear Vajranatha

Great to meet you at the ECA and thank you for all that you are doing in Merida. Just to let you know we will be screening your video clip tonight at our regular Sangha night in Melbourne.

Quite a few of our Melbourne Sangha will be on  retreat together when the first international Metta for Merida Meditation occurs and so we will be joining in at 4.30am from country Victoria.

We will also be encouraging our Sangha not on retreat to sit at home in synch with our friends across the world holding Venezuela and the Merida Sangha in their hearts.

With Metta and Appreciation

Dantacitta
