The Death of, and rejoicing in Moksacitta

Wed, 4 Jan, 2023 - 11:04

Please see below message from Nandavajra, FutureDharma Fund director.

I am writing to let you know of the death of Moksacitta, on 29th December, our friend and colleague at FutureDharma. All of us in the team are deeply saddened and shocked by her swift illness and death; a mere three months ago she was participating in the team and carrying out her responsibilities with her customary good cheer and chirpiness. Moksacitta was 56 and was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in...

Triratna reaches Trinidad!

Tue, 15 Nov, 2022 - 14:15

Hugh Skinner, from Trinidad, is a permaculturist in his 90s and lives in a hermitage in the Trinidadian countryside.

Save for one group, there are currently no Buddhist activities in Trinidad,...
