From Triratna International Council on Thu, 19 Sep, 2019 - 17:47

“From the moment of a person’s first contact with our movement, he or she should be able to discover a balanced approach that is appropriate to them… The Karmic work of integration and developing positive emotion, and the Dharmic work of spiritual receptivity, death, and rebirth.

“The elements of the system… from the stage of Integration through to that of Spiritual Rebirth can be seen as the principal elements of the Dharma life at all stages, Indeed, if they are not practised at...

“To be a chair is not to be a particular kind of person…they are very different. But what they do have in common, is a love of Triratna, a love of the Dharma and a longing to help…”

The 2019 Summer ECA - European Chairs’ Assembly - took place at Padmaloka in the UK.  We are joined by Aryanita from Paris, Vanaraji from Mid-Essex, Jayaraja from Buddhafield and Amritasiddhi from Nagpur, India, all reflecting on how...

Podcast - An Update from The Sikkha Project

From Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 19 Apr, 2019 - 09:20

“The idea is that, at some point, it won’t be a project; it’ll just be more like how we do things”

The Sikkha Project aims to support the development of training within Triratna for every level of experience, to discover and share how the different elements of our system of practice are taught and practiced most effectively, and to create resources and training to fill any gaps.

Here’s a conversation with Dhammamegha, currently co-ordinating this project, explaining its origins, who’s involved and the ‘shopping...

Ujjalamati's picture

I’m part of the Thames Buddhist Centre (aka “Buddhaloka”) near Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre in NZ. Our wee centre has been going for over 11 years in the same location and at times in the past was quite busy, but has been a bit static for a long time in terms of numbers. Proportionally we have quite a lot of Order Members (some of whom are still quite new), and most of our Mitras are in the Training for Ordination stage. We don’t get many newcomers, and have had no new Mitras for a long time. Our Centre Management Team identified the Sikkha Project site as a really good resource to empower our potential Dharma teachers, and provide a way of encouraging some of our “long term Friends” to become supporters for Courses aimed at newcomers.

Thanks to Akasamati putting her hand up to take the lead with utilizing the Radical Dharma Course material, we will be pioneering a new Weds Dharma Night to add to our ongoing weekly Monday Sangha Night this July. We are excited and very grateful for this resource and also the format that blends Dharma with Meditation for the “complete Package”! Cheers! Ujjalamati
