This week Triratna News presents a special series of five short videos - with commentary - on the new home for the Sangharakshita Land Project and indeed for Sangharakshita himself. In the first, amid changeable winter weather, Mokshapriya shows us round the main house and explains what it takes to restore an 18th century English country house in Herefordshire, UK. When completed, it will be Triratna’s largest retreat centre catering for over 100 retreatants plus two communities.

If the embedded video player is not showing, you can find the video here.

You can read something of their initial vision on their blog: an ambitious brief that initiated an intensive - and often gruelling - three-year search by the Land Project team, which finally led to the present property, purchased late last year and currently undergoing major renovations. .

At the end of this week, on Saturday, Dhammarati will announce the Centre’s new name, already chosen by Sangharakshita, to the assembled Order, currently gathering at Bodh Gaya for the triennial International Order Convention.

The videos were made by Clear Vision, Triratna’s video production facility.
