This special two-month online study is being led by Khemavassika, exploring the Six Emphases of the Triratna Buddhist Community, as described by its founder Sangharakshita.  The Six Emphases detail central principles of the Triratna Community, marking what connects us and also what makes us different from other Buddhist traditions. 

For those participating, the next study session will be held this Wednesday, September 30th at 3:00 ET / 8:00 UK. (This week will repeat last week’s session because, due to techical difficulties, no one could participate.)  We will discuss Critical Ecumenicism in the Triratna Buddhist Community using the following podcasts from Free Buddhist Audio as source material:

“Ecumenical Buddhism” - by Sangharakshita
“Finding the Heart of the Dharma Traditions” - by Vishvapani
“The Ecumenical Emphasis in Triratna” - by Manjuvajra  

Each week’s study will focus around a series of three talks from our weekly Dharmabytes and Free Buddhist Audio podcasts. All study sessions will be held on Google Hangout, via The Buddhist Centre’s Google+ page.  Study participants will receive a link before each session so they can join in the discussion.
