Becoming a Mitra in the Triratna Buddhist CommunityPosted by Candradasa on Thu, 19 September, 2013 - 17:35
The Triratna Buddhist Community is open to all those who wish to practise Buddhism.
Most people encounter Triratna through a meditation or Buddhism class at a Triratna centre. Everyone who has contact with Triratna is considered a friend. However someone who wants to make a particular connection with our community and see their Buddhist practice in that context can ask to become a ‘Mitra’ (which simply means ‘friend’ in Sanskrit).
If this might be of interest to you this booklet may help you to:
- Get a better sense of the meaning and importance of becoming a Mitra.
- Decide whether you want to take this step.
- Explain how you can go about becoming a Mitra if you wish to.
