Following last week’s film about India Dhamma’s Young People’s Projects, this week Liz celebrates the achievements of a young member of our Sangha in India.

Neha Gajbhiye is a graphic designer, film-maker, and a GFR Mitra. She lives in Nagpur with her husband Maitriratna and shares her Buddhist practice with her family, who are also involved in Triratna.

Can Triratna really help change this suffering world?

Terrorism, environmental degradation, the consumerist tide of distraction and dissatisfaction: sometimes the world can seem broken.

Triratna is entering its next 50 years. Can Triratna offer more people ways to stay sane in a confusing world: ways to connect, to grow and to give?
