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.
