FBA Podcast: A Deeper Rhythm

By Zac on Sat, 7 Jan, 2023 - 06:00

Vishvapani explores the dynamic vision of Urgyen Sangharakshita in setting up a new Buddhist movement in the West, and asks how we might relate to him now. Voices and stories, told and untold, come echoing through as Vishvapani makes the case that a deeper examination of Sangharakshita’s teaching and approach reveals a deeper rhythm to his life and work that is relevant to everyone practicing in Triratna today.

Chairs' Letter – June 2022

By ratnadharini on Sun, 3 Jul, 2022 - 22:51

As well as my regular visits to South Wales, I’ve also been to London, Stratford-upon-Avon (wonderful to get to the theatre again: Henry VI and Richard III), and Leek in northern England (checking out a possible property for Tiratanaloka). I’ve also been kayaking down the River Taff to Cardiff basin, negotiating a couple of weirs and a lot of rocks...
