There are now approaching 1900 Order Members in Triratna, spread across nearly 30 countries. In a remarkable feat of computer graphics, their photographs, together with those of all those Order Members who have died, plus several hundred works of Buddhist art, have all been assembled into a single ‘mosaic’ image of the Thousand-Armed Avalokitesvara - a Bodhisattva who has long been taken as a symbol of the Order.

The complete image is available for download from The Buddhist Centre Online as either JPG or PDF, or as a ‘clickable’ webpage here. Many thanks to Catherine Powell who painted the image on which the mosaic is based.
