A lovely short film of Triratna’s 50 year celebrations of the Central European region. About 180 - 200 people from four countries were present (France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, plus some guests from UK). On Saturday we had a whole range of workshops, outings, practice and a cultural night at the Essen Buddhist Centre. On Sunday, we moved into the former miners’ washing rooms of world heritage site ‘Zollverein’, where we meditated, celebrated puja, heard reflections on 50 years of...

Clear Vision’s latest NewsByte video reports on some of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the founding of Triratna (as the FWBO) on 8th April 1967.

Join Mokshini, Karunadarshin, Sudhana, Nandavajra and others from the Devon Sangha to travel to the Bristol Buddhist Centre for the day to mark “50 years of the Triratna Buddhist Community”! It would be lovely if there was a whole group of us from Exeter going up. The plan is to all go on a train together on the 8.23am from Exeter St David’s to Bristol Temple Meads, and return in the evening on the 18.44pm departure from Temple Meads.

It would be helpful if...

Dear friends,

In just over 2 months our Triratna Buddhist Community will mark the 50th anniversary of its founding on April 6th, 1967.  I hope many of you will be able to join in with your Sangha at your nearest larger Centre for the day for the celebrations.  ​
 
All over the world Triratna Centres and Groups will gather to celebrate and many will already have developed plans for the day.
