Come along! Celebrating 50 years of the Triratna Buddhist Community

By mokshini on Fri, 10 Mar, 2017 - 18:02

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...

Join the Team at Bristol Buddhist Centre

By jvalamalini on Sat, 14 Jan, 2017 - 18:56

Bristol Buddhist Centre is thriving and our sangha is growing. We’re looking for a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order to join the Centre Team to share the responsibility for facilitating

  • Communication of Sangharakshita’s vision including the tools of transformation
  • A flow of kalyana mitrata to build community and deepen commitment and Sangha

This would involve working with the existing team on our evolving ethos and culture of generosity, including working with volunteers as mentor and kalyana mitra to give them more sangha involvement and opportunity of Dharma service,...

Would you give £50 a month?

Bristol Buddhist Centre runs on generosity.

In 2015 we stopped making charges for classes, courses, and Sangha activities, and invited all of us to keep them happening by giving money and energy.

We responded generously – our regular monthly donations have almost doubled.  Thank you to everyone who has given, on behalf of everyone who has been through our doors this year to contact the Buddha-Dharma as expressed in our Sangha!

And there’s further...

Shraddhalocani's Gift to Bhante

By Abhayamaitri on Fri, 24 Jul, 2015 - 01:43

In Bristol, Shraddhalocani will be celebrating her birthday this coming weekend. She writes “Dear to my heart is the celebration of Bhante’s 90th birthday next month, and the birthday present he has requested”. Instead of a personal gift she has asked her friends to make a donation towards Bhante’s birthday present. She continues “This gift would give me immense pleasure, as I wrote in Bhante’s birthday card ‘My life would be immensely impoverished without your generosity’, and without his generosity...

Bhante's Birthday Appeal in Bristol

By Abhayamaitri on Sun, 19 Jul, 2015 - 20:00

I wanted to share some of our fundraising efforts here at the Bristol Buddhist Centre, with the hope of giving inspiration to others. We have created a ‘Bhante’s 90th Birthday’ display, including a time-line of his life so far, various pictures of Bhante, a display of some of his books, some best loved Bhante quotes, plus an area for people to share how the Dharma has impacted on their life. We also have a ‘Bhante Birthday Bowl’ for people to...
