Would you like to work for the Future of the Dharma?

Thu, 2 Feb, 2023 - 17:48

Since our launch in 2016, FutureDharma Fund has grown to support 45 international Triratna projects, including those of the India Dhamma Trust, and raised over £1,200,000. This year we aim to raise £500,000 for this vital work.

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...

Latin America Appeal- Double your Gift, Double your Impact!

Thu, 1 Dec, 2022 - 15:02

” There is unusually fertile ground for us here in Mexico, and Latin America. I believe we need to be investing hugely; money, resources, human beings etc.

We need to act fast brothers and sisters. Really fast. We’ve no time to waste. Otherwise this moment will just pass”

– Subhuti, at Toluca Buddhist Centre, May 2022

Latin America, like much of the developing world, is facing serious challenges. Environmental changes, persistent inequality, and increasing violence force millions of people throughout the region to live...

Some personal reflections from Amalavajra, FutureDharma’s Fundraising Director, and Vajratara, India Dhamma Trust’s Chair

Amalavajra writes:

‘Last week I was with Lalitavyuha at the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton, UK, as the combination of pneumonia and Covid stole his last breaths. It was a privilege to sit amongst his loved ones and chanting his yidam Green Tara’s mantra. This donor had become a good friend.

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. Hugh came across Subhuti’s Windhorse book, Buddhism for Today, and was fascinated by the idea of a new society. This inspired him to reach out to Subhuti and the two of them started speaking by phone. Subhuti also put Hugh in touch with an Order Member from India, Kumarjeev. Save for one group, there are currently no Buddhist activities in Trinidad,...

From Triratna 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...
