Hey, everyone! Can you help us with something very specific?

Our great friends in Colchester Buddhist Centre - who helped pioneer the Sustainable Buddhist Centre Scheme - just need about 200 of us to vote for them in their noble environmental quest to win funding for solar panels at their Buddhist Centre! There are 250 of us in this group alone…

It’s all based on most votes received and ends in two days on the 30th. Colchester were doing well and were in...

Sahajatara - Apparell'd In Celestial Light

By Candradasa on Sat, 29 Aug, 2015 - 07:34

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, 
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparell’d in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.

Appropriately enough, a talk in a rainstorm! Sahajatara offers a beautiful discourse to close the Conscious Surrender to the Beautiful Arts event. She opens with this short extract from Wordsworth’s ‘Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood’ and a long reading from...

May 27, 2015 by Amanda Froelich 

see link http://www.trueactivist.com/the-man-who-stopped-frances-food-waste-seeks…

Arash Derambarsh, the local councillor who kick-started the fight against food waste in his own Paris suburb, seeks to convince other countries to follow France’s lead and eliminate food waste.

The internet was in a frenzy when France recently passed legislation making it illegal for stores to purposely waste discarded food. As many pointed out in the comments section of True Activist’s coverage, such an...

Revitalising the New Society

By guhyapati on Wed, 17 Dec, 2014 - 19:00The New Society idea was at the heart of Sangharakshita’s founding vision for the Triratna Community in the 1960’s and 70’s. In recent years many of us have been asking what this means today. The level of interest in revitalising the vision of the New Society has been flagged up repeatedly at the meeting of Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly, but how to make that real remains work in progress. Taking a step forwards in the exploration, Guhyapati (from the ...

Seeking Triratna sangha in Indonesia

By Munisha on Fri, 3 Oct, 2014 - 13:33What if there’s no Triratna sangha where you are? Today and tomorrow, Triratna News hears from two people far from Triratna sangha, starting with Anne-Cathrin. A German mitra training for ordination, she lives in Bogor, Indonesia.

She writes: “I asked for ordination August 2013. At the same time, I decided to embark on the adventure of Going Forth. Though I understood that the ordination process involved practice in daily life with Buddhist friends, I also longed to use my...

New Name For Group: Karaniya Metta Kula

By Christine on Fri, 29 Aug, 2014 - 10:24At our first “Beyond BAM” meeting (Aug 14), one of the goals was to choose a new name for the group. Shining out for its inclusivity, simplicity, and straight-forwardness, those in attendance decided unanimously on “Karaniya Metta Kula”. This famous sutta, which literally means “beautiful metta”, elegantly summarizes all the ways by which we can have a positive influence on the world around us, whether through meditation:
And think of every living thing without exception:
the weak and the strong,...
