In Harmony with Friends and Brethren I Accept This Ordination

Sat, 27 Jan, 2018 - 00:00
During the 2018 'What is The Order?' retreat held at Padmaloka for men who are training for ordination, members of the Ordination Team gave talks on each of the 4 acceptance vows, which are recited during one's public ordination ceremony and which essentialise what it means to be a Dharmachari practising within the Triratna Buddhist Order. In this talk Surata speaks about the second vow, 'in harmony with friends and brethren I accept this ordination'. The talk by Surata on the first vow - 'with loyalty to my teachers I accept this ordination' - was unfortunately not recorded. However you can listen to the outstanding talk by Padmavajra on the subject given during the 2017 'What is The Order?' retreat: https://www.freebuddhistaudio.com/audio/details?num=LOC3180
