Bergvärme på Dharmagiri

By Viryabodhi on Fri, 24 Jan, 2020 - 07:22

Vi håller på att installera bergvärme för Dharmagiri. Efter många år med bränslepellets och olika pelletsbrännare – som ibland har haft lite av ett eget liv – ska vi äntligen få bergvärme. Det blir en pump till gröna huset och en till röda, med borrhål till vardera (ca 240 meter djupt). Det ska bli skönt att slippa oron för pelletsbrännaren och även kunna justera värmen på distans, via internet. Det här kostar så klart en slant, ca 250 000kr per...

Rainbow highlights from The Buddhist Centre Online

By Munisha on Mon, 29 Jun, 2015 - 16:20

To mark Pride week(end) around the world, and Friday’s landmark announcement that the US Supreme Court has declared conservative states’ opposition to same-sex marriage unconstitutional, you may have noticed that The Buddhist Centre Online’s logo has spontaneously developed a joyful rainbow background!

America’s historic news came just before the weekend on which many cities traditionally celebrate LGBTQ Pride, around the anniversary of New York’s Stonewall Riots of 28th June 1969; often seen as the birth of the modern gay...

Form and emptiness: Triratna Stockholm holds first LGBTQ retreat

By Munisha on Sat, 13 Jun, 2015 - 19:02

Vajradarshini is the new Chair of Triratna’s Stockholm Buddhist Centre. 

She writes: “Last month the Stockholm sangha held its first LGBTQ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer/questioning; known in Swedish as HBTQ) retreat, hoisting a rainbow flag at Dharmagiri, our retreat centre north of Stockholm. (Domestic flagpoles are standard in Sweden, flying a penant in the national colours of blue and yellow.) Fifteen Order members, mitras and friends gathered from Sweden, Finland and Norway to explore the way gender...

Where was this picture taken and is it Buddhist?

By Munisha on Thu, 15 Jan, 2015 - 00:31Think our new header image is just too northern hemisphere? Send us some from the southern hemisphere!

It’s a snowy New Year landscape familiar to Triratna’s Swedish sangha, close by their beautiful retreat centre, Dharmagiri, a converted village school.

I took it on my iPhone during their New Year retreat with Tejananda. (At minus 14 degrees Celsius/6.8 degrees Fahrenheit, keep your iPhone in your inner pocket, or the screen will go black, displaying the mystifying message...

Ordination, sanghahelg och småpyssel

Ordination, sanghahelg och småpyssel

By Viryabodhi on Thu, 16 Oct, 2014 - 09:19Rapport från Dharmagiri (september 2014)

Som alla troligen minns hade vi en osedvanligt vacker och varm september i år. Vädret passade perfekt för Sanghahelgen, då vi som vanligt vid denna tid på året mest arbetade utomhus, bl.a. med att ta ned lite träd och sly, byggde en tillfällig trapp till verkstaden, rensade i rabatter, grävde större grönsaksland m.m. Vi målade också det nya rummet på övervåningen i gröna huset och väggarna i korridoren utanför, i en vacker ljusgrön färg...
