What the World Needs Now: Triratna’s Gift

From Community Highlights on Thu, 20 Jan, 2022 - 17:19

Saturday, April 9 2022

Triratna Day 2022 will focus on our contribution to the world: a vision of truth, communicated in a culture of kalyana mitrata (“beautiful friendship”), for the benefit of all. The day will be an experience of that, especially of being part of a global network of friendships for the good.

We’ll have four events—meditation, talk, a seminar and a puja—hosted from Adhisthana, Berlin, and the Americas. Translation will be available for some sessions. And our symbol will be Bhante Sangharakshita’s...

Most significantly, TBMSG Pune has had its foreign contributions permission removed. This is one of the main trusts supporting Triratna social projects in India. It employs 67 staff, mostly Mitras and...

We’ve got some exciting news to share. We’re going to be working a lot more closely with India Dhamma Trust. 

With the world in lockdown, no-one is unaffected. In India conditions are hard. Food is difficult to come by and expensive. Many people don’t have homes or sanitation. People that do have homes often live with many family members sharing a small space. There is mass migration with migrant workers returning to their home villages. The sangha in India are responding to the needs...

Too many people in the night in the rain: Impressions from Venezuela

“More of the same, reaching more and more people.” Urgyen Sangharakshita

Speaking just a few months before he died, this was Sangharakshita’s ongoing vision for Triratna. FutureDharma exists to help make this beautifully simple vision a vibrant reality.

We set out in 2016 with nine Dharma Priorities, the blessing and support of the College of Public Preceptors, and the fervent belief that members of Triratna love our sangha and want to give other people the opportunity to benefit from it. From the get go we have supported...
