Mitra Ceremony & CelebrationOn Mon, 4 November, 2013 - 22:01
Join us on Wednesday November 13th, 7 pm, to witness and celebrate as Maryellen Burke engages in a simple ceremony to become a mitra, or ‘friend’ in a more formal sense to the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community. A mitra is someone who is actively involved in Triratna activities, and intends to continue practicing the Dharma in this community. Becoming a Mitra marks a deepening of commitment with specific retreats, study groups covering the key aspects of the Buddha’s teaching and Sangharakshita’s approach to it.
