Triratna Around the World
From its office in the Manchester Buddhist Centre, UK, Clear Vision has been providing Triratna with professional Buddhist video services for more than 20 years. It runs the VideoSangha website, where you can find reams of FWBO and Triratna video going back many years.
Says director Upekshapriya, “For many years, we supplied the then FWBO with “FWBO Newsreels” twice a year. Watching them on video cassette was a regular and very popular sangha event in many Centres, giving people a strong sense of being part of a worldwide Buddhist movement.
Of course our new online “Triratna Newsbyte” is much easier to distribute! It has the potential to reach far more viewers and lots of people will watch it on their iPads etc, but what we’d really like is for you to watch it together - in large numbers.”
Newsbyte 2 will be released in November, for Sangha Day. Put it on your Centre calendar! Don’t forget, Newsbyte is international. Clear Vision want to know about your news, wherever you are.
