Buddhist Centre Features
If you are any way way connected to Triratna, the International Council is kind of a big deal. Even if you don’t know it!
Last week – as every year – Order members all around the world gathered for a series of intensive discussions to explore Dharma practice in our community. What’s live and bubbling up in their own areas: Australia and New Zealand, Canada & the USA, Europe, India, Ireland & the UK. What’s passing through our Movement and Order internationally – like a vital ocean current, carrying tradition and innovation with it, travelling across geographic and cultural boundaries, bringing the Dharma to life.
Trying to capture what happened is a tough ask at the best of times. And this year, since it was all happening online in many time zones, the work of keeping up with it all required a different kind of effort.
Every day we produced a five-minute video, like taking a snapshot of a dynamic, creative, ever-changing context in a moment in time. The conversations sampled were from the perspective of one area of the world each day. We present them all together here here in their byte-sized splendour.
If you care about Triratna – or just what it’s like to try and maintain and encourage the development of a truly global Buddhist community – you’ll find many jewels here. Enjoy the video rainbow stream!
The theme of this year’s meeting was ‘The Arising of the Bodhichitta’: watch all the Dharma talks here!
