One is never too old to learn. It is only relatively late in my Dharma life that I have become more aware of or have focused on the Garava Sutta of the Pali Canon. This is not to say that I did not know of its existence but that it started having a significance for me that...

Gyproc & Flares: Sukhavati in the 1970s

Posted by Centre Team on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:46

Siddhiratna sent this amazing short archive film of the very early days of the FWBO (former name for Triratna) in London in the 1970s as the new community there were preparing to build what would become the London Buddhist Centre in an old fire station…
