Celebrating our 50th year, Triratna Buddhist Community is a truly international Sangha. Zoe Lim is the only mitra training for Ordination in Singapore. Liz Bassett, from FutureDharma Fund, caught up with her friend to talk about her life and why she loves The Buddhist Centre Online - one of the many projects to receive funding from FutureDharmaFund this year.
Zoe found Triratna at the Nottingham centre when she was a student, and since moving back to Singapore has returned to the UK to attend retreats at Tiratanaloka, ...
Many Triratna Buddhist Centres run successful local Urban Retreats - notably the LBC, which I gather attracts a lot of new-ish people each year and is both a great way to embed practice in daily life, as well as strengthen connections within your Sangha.

‘The whole sense that Sangharakshita gave me of the Order was of something through which we were deeply involved with one another’s lives, were really standing shoulder to shoulder with one another, caring for one another not just spiritually but on all levels, and that’s really stayed with me. That spirit is still alive in the Order today, and I feel that The Abhayaratna Trust is one way we can really express it.’
Dharmashalin returns in today’s FBA Dharmabyte with part two of his overview of the spiritual life of Sangharakshita. In “Sangharakshita and Triratna,” we continue the story principally through the development of Triratna from a dream to an international Buddhist community.
