Triratna’s San Francisco Buddhist Center Sangha have been in touch with news of their progress towards a new Triratna Retreat Centre, currently emerging in the mountains of Northern California. They write -

Dear Friends: Our vision is to create a simple place for people to continue to go forth into the forest, and to go for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. As the Buddha says in the Anapanasati Sutta - “The meditator, having gone to the forest, to the shade of a tree, or to an empty building, sits down with legs folded crosswise, body held erect, and sets mindfulness to the fore.”

To make this vision possible, we need help from our friends in the wider Movement. With your participation, we hope to raise 10,000 $US in addition to our local fundraising to pay back purchase loans and continue developing the retreat center. PLEASE ACT TODAY and make a single donation. Any size gift is welcome from $10 to $10,000. Together we can do it!

Being physically far away from you, it would be a gift for our sangha to receive your blessings and encouragement in response to our appeal. Flowers and trees will be planted as a symbol of the Dharma seeds you are planting in North America.

Please visit our website to learn more, donate, and enjoy a video poem inspired by the project.

May all beings benefit. The San Francisco Buddhist Center Sangha
