Since Adhisthana closed, we have been cancelling retreats and refunding those booked on a rolling basis. When contacting people we have also been inviting them to donate their deposit (or more), to be distributed to those Triratna centres and organisations that will need additional help with funding during these uncertain times.

There has been a massive outpouring of generosity from people, and you can see some of the team talking about this in more detail in one of our blog post ‘...

365 Days of Bhante

By Caroline I P on Fri, 27 Mar, 2020 - 14:06

A significant aspect of our work here at Adhisthana is to keep alive the spirit of our founder and teacher, Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita, in the years after his passing on the 20th October 2018. There are many ways that we do this - by passing on his teachings; providing a context for people to visit his last residence and resting place; preserving and making available his library; and by celebrating his anniversaries.
