Our Adult Protection Policy & Child Protection Policy

(Please note that in Scotland the term ‘protection’ is used instead of ‘safeguarding’. We occasionally use the word safeguarding if its usage helps the meaning be a little clearer.)

Our Ethical Guidelines

Like our Protection policies, it expresses our commitment to the 5 Ethical Precepts, and outlines how they are practiced.

This is the 5th talk from our Rainy Season Retreat at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre. Maitrinaga and Suriyavamsa share some of their musings on sadhana. These two friends are in the same order chapter and frequently talk about sadhanas as an essential and inspiring part of their practice. This two-hander covers both the lived experience and principles of sadhana practice. And looks at how that sits within the Triratna system of practice, or aspects of spiritual life.
