Posted by Sadayasihi on Thu, 14 Jun, 2018 - 16:51

The object of meditation is to transform oneself, not to have good meditations

Sangharakshita, Peace is a Fire

What Meditation Is and What It Isn’t

5 Years Of The Buddhist Centre Online: #4 The Triratna Buddhist Order

Posted by Sadayasihi on Thu, 26 Apr, 2018 - 17:35

I have started the movement. The future of the Order, of the movement is in your hands.

An Evening To Dedicate The 2018 Order Convention

Posted by Centre Team on Mon, 5 Feb, 2018 - 03:00

A quick taste via Instagram pictures and video of what it’s like to arrive at a great Dharma gathering in India, where over 600 members of the the Triratna Buddhist Order are gathered for a week of fellowship and practice, for the benefit of all beings. 

We were welcomed by Lokeshvara and Parami, made the seven traditional offerings (water to drink, water to wash, a flower, a candle, incense, perfumed water, food), performed the dedication ceremony, and greeted...

Posted by akasajoti on Sat, 9 Dec, 2017 - 11:11

This talk is open to all.

The closing talk from the women’s area order weekend at Adhisthana in December 2017. The weekend was on the theme of Padmasambhava and the Arising of Faith.

Parami riffs off of the Advice from the Lotus Born given to Yeshe Tsogyal on the conditions for the arising of faith. She talks of a vision she had of Padmasambhava at Dhanakhosa earlier in the year, and her reflections since on the relevance of Padmasambhava to her personally, to the...
