The Buddhist Centre Online - Keeping people connected

Tue, 21 Mar, 2017 - 12:03

Zoe Lim is the only GFR mitra in Singapore. She found Triratna at the Nottingham centre when she was a student, and since moving back to Singapore has returned to the UK to attend retreats at Tiratanaloka, and travelled to India for the International Buddhist Youth Convention. Liz caught up with her online to talk about her life in Singapore and how online resources keep her connected with the Sangha.

In Singapore life is fast paced, expensive and often stressful....

Online Dharma is for Everyone!

Online Dharma is for Everyone!

Thu, 19 Jan, 2017 - 11:12

Giving the Dharma to anyone and everyone who wants it is what it’s all about. That’s why Triratna makes so much Dharma available online. The Buddhist Centre, Clearvision, Free Buddhist Audio, Video Sangha are all available completely free. And getting hold of these resources online can mean so much – access to the Dharma and a way of being part of our amazing, worldwide sangha. Munisha met up with Thomas and Carina Rotter, a couple in Austria, who live far from any Triratna centre,...

New Books for the New Year

Tue, 3 Jan, 2017 - 14:36

Happy New Year! I’m busy getting back into work and writing thank you notes for pressies received over the festive period. The best presents you can get I reckon, are books.  And they’re also the best to give because they can change lives. That’s why FutureDharma Fund supports the Translation Project, which is producing high quality translations of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma.

By supporting translators working in a range of languages the Translations Project is helping make the Dharma available to more...

Recognise any of these lovely people?

Recognise any of these lovely people?

Mon, 14 Nov, 2016 - 08:00

Recognise any of these Order members, Mitras or Friends?

Do they seem special or ordinary to you? Anything stand out?

They are all giving to FutureDharma Fund. Some of them give a monthly donation, some have given a larger one-off gift, made us a loan or put FutureDharma Fund in their Will. In a way, quite ordinary things to do. But also special, because all of our donors have thought carefully about what effect they want their money to have in the world.  

Who can...

Send us a FutureDharma postcard!

Mon, 31 Oct, 2016 - 09:00

At FutureDharma Fund we love getting post!  So when we were thinking of the best way of getting in touch with the lovely Triratna community the answer seemed obvious – a postcard.  Throughout the summer we’ve been sending out bundles of FutureDharma Fund postcards to Triratna centres and retreat centres across the world.  They carry a very simple message:

The world needs what you’ve been given.  Pass it on.

FutureDharma Fund is a way for all of us to play our part in taking Triratna...

FutureDharma Fund is launched at Combined Order Convention

Sun, 28 Aug, 2016 - 11:10

On Saturday 20th August FutureDharma Fund was launched by Amalavajra at the Combined Order Convention.  You can read Munisha’s news story here:

Stopping at a roadside service station during a journey many years ago, Sangharakshita surprised his companions by throwing a coin into the wishing well outside. “Did you wish for Enlightenment?” they joked. “No”, he answered, “Enlightenment is guaranteed if you make the effort. I wished for money. With money you can start Buddhist centres.

Money Awakening Retreat

Money Awakening Retreat

Fri, 15 Jul, 2016 - 14:54

In May Amalavajra ran a Money Awakening Retreat at Adhisthana.  Participants from the UK, Europe and Mexico spent a weekend together reflecting on their relationship with money.  Through meditation, puja and workshops they explored how we earn, spend, save and donate our money, and learnt how our relationship with money is part of our spiritual life.  Meditating on the Buddha Ratnasambhava, retreat participants were encouraged to focus on the 3rd and 2nd precepts: Live Simpler, Give More
