“…while still young, a black-haired young person endowed with the blessings of youth, in the prime of life, I shaved off my hair and beard, put on the yellow robe, and went forth from the home life into homelessness.” - Majjhima Nikaya, 36

The 2019 Triratna Young Buddhists’ Retreat (the ‘Big One’) takes place at Adhisthana this weekend. This year’s theme is ‘Blueprint for a New Society’, following in the archetypal footsteps of the Buddha, leaving behind the world of technology, busyness, and the demands of modern life, and entering into a different way of being with other young people. What the Buddha discovered as a youth all those years ago is still alive in the connections between young people practising the Dharma today!
