First One Month Retreat for Young Women in India

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 3 Dec, 2019 - 16:22

“I was so determined to come here, I sent my resignation (letter) and I came” - Ashweeni (Nanded)

In 2018, for the first time in India, a five week Dhamma training course for young women took place. It was arranged by members of the Indian women’s ordination team and supported by Padmasuri and Karunamaya. It was a significant retreat as many of the participants have families and children, making it was difficult for them to come away...

Cardiff Buddhist Centre's First Bed and Breakfast Retreat

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 5 Nov, 2019 - 17:43

The Cardiff Buddhist Centre have just hosted their first Bed and Breakfast retreat on the theme of the Bodhisattva training. A Bed and Breakfast retreat is where one sangha invites people from other Triratna sanghas to come and stay with members of their sangha - who provide them with bed and breakfast - so they can join them on retreat. 

Kamalagita, the Chair of the Cardiff Buddhist Centre writes: “We promised guests a ‘Warm, Welsh Welcome’ (Croeso, Cynnes Cymraeg) and they came from...

Jnanavaca - Seeing Bhante: A Personal Perspective

Jnanavaca - Seeing Bhante: A Personal Perspective

By Centre Team on Mon, 4 Nov, 2019 - 12:50

On the first anniversary of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s death Jnanavaca gives a compelling and heartfelt talk about how we might view the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and community: an extraordinary human but also finite and fallible, a visionary genius in the mould of Blake, and translator of the Dharma, who helped bring the Buddhist tradition alive. Jnanavaca also outlines how he himself views Bhante: a Bodhisattva and a Guru - a ‘Teacher’ with a capital ‘T’.

47 Years of Friendship and Service: Saddhanandi Interviews Sona

By ciparr on Thu, 31 Oct, 2019 - 15:42

On the 30th October 2019 there was a community practice day at Adhisthana to mark the first anniversary of the death of Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Buddhist community. Sangharakshita spent the last few years of his life at Adhisthana and is now buried there.

During that day Saddhanandi, the chair of Adhisthana, interviewed Sona about his relationship with Sangharakshita. Sona was ordained by Sangharakshita in 1974 and had a long-standing friendship with him.

Recorded at Adhisthana, 30th October 2019....
