Mahasukha’s Shakyamuni Buddha mantra is one of several we’ll be chanting on the Triratna International Retreat, coming up in early June. It will led and introduced by Mahasukha, taken from his album Longing – a beautiful collection of mantras and chants.
Vajragupta, who’s overseeing the event, says: “Bookings are coming in fast now. In the last week or so, substantial groups from Copenhagen, Berlin, and Gent have booked. We’ve also heard there is a bus-load of folk coming from Essen and Amsterdam. Plus people are coming from Paris, Stockholm, Malta, Valencia, Dublin, and, of course,all around the UK.” The Buddha taught that for a sangha to thrive and stay united, it needs to meet regularly and in large numbers. This is your chance to join the largest gathering of the Triratna Sangha in Europe in 2012.
