Saddhamani from Paris, France, used to live at Padmaloka Retreat Centre in Norfolk, England. Here he gives a lovely, personal account of the role of friendship in his own life as part of a wider community of Buddhists supporting each other in their practice of the Buddha’s Dharma.
This pack aims to offer a selection of useful resources to anyone in the Triratna Buddhist Community thinking to start a residential community, or already living in one.
It includes practical advice, inspirational material and Dharma resources; also ideas that may help in times of difficulty. It’s a collaborative effort between members of the Triratna Development team (Lokabandhu, Vajragupta, Jnanarakshita), and people from the Young Buddhists Sangha (Alice, Sally, Knut, and others). Thanks to all who’ve contributed.
