About 60 Order Members gathered at Adhisthana last week for a retreat on the Manjughosa Stuti Sadhana, spending each day moving through the system of practice and building up the Sadhana. Each afternoon in the Sangharakshita Library, before the image of Manjughosa that presides there, Subhuti gave a talk articulating six different aspects of the unfolding drama of the Sadhana, which correspond to the stages of the system of practice - Reverence, Solidarity, Wise Attention, The Illumined Image, Dwelling in Reality + Dedication.

On April 8th 2017 Triratna Day was celebrated around the world as the 50th anniversary of its founding in 1967. We visit Sheffield for the Northern English celebration, Adhisthana, Dhanakosa in Scotland and Essen for the Western European events in Germany.
Thanks to Suryaprabha for his Lights in the Sky videos, to Ben Linsey-Bloom for organising footage from Adhisthana, Shantiketu for Dhanakosa and Frank Mählen from Essen.
Adhisthana is sometimes referred to as the ‘home’ of the Triratna Buddhist Order – but, it’s situated in rural Herefordshire in the UK and we are an International community, so not all of us will be fortunate to be able to visit and go on retreat there! So, this week Akasajoti is sharing her experience of the Blazing in the Fires of Sunyata retreat, through daily stories, video posts, quotations, and the occasional pop song, exploring their theme of Metta and Bodhicitta.
