When your local sangha is online (One World, One Sangha)

By Liz_Bassett on Thu, 21 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

In yesterday’s post we shared Alex’s experience of being able to reach out online, along with his sangha in Brazil, and practice with our international Sangha. 

Zoe lives in Singapore, and unlike Alex, doesn’t have a local sangha. In fact Zoe is the only practising member of Triratna in Singapore. Her nearest sanghas are in Australia and India! Despite this Zoe is a Mitra and is training for Ordination.  

We all know the importance of having a local sangha where we can study and practice and share...

Being part of our International Sangha (One World, One Sangha)

Alex lives in Sao Paulo Brazil. He loves being part his sangha and helps Manjupriya, the only Order member in Brazil, run their activities. Theirs is the only Triratna sangha in Brazil. In fact their nearest neighbours are our Sangha in Merida, Venezuela - 2,700 miles away!  

Being able to take part in International Sangha Day: A Festival of Light was an unexpected and precious opportunity for Alex and his sangha. It’s not possible for him to travel from Brazil to go on...

A Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times (One World, One Sangha)

By Liz_Bassett on Tue, 19 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

When the pandemic hit in spring 2020 many of us went into immediate lockdowns. As our local Buddhist Centres were forced to close their doors many worked with tremendous resource and ingenuity to move their sanghas online. It really was incredible to see.

The Buddhist Centre Online team responded with a gift to our Sangha in the form of the Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times. This almost magical resource of podcasts, talks, retreats, courses, and live meditation sessions...

One World, One Sangha: FutureDharma and The Buddhist Centre Online

By Candradasa on Sun, 17 Oct, 2021 - 23:57

The Buddhist Centre Online will be ten years old at the end of 2022. It’s been an amazing journey building an online platform for Triratna—and FutureDharma has been with us all the way.

So I’m delighted to welcome the FutureDharma team to the site for a special focus on their renewing vision. Over the next two weeks you’ll be hearing about the best of their work and their plans for the next few years, that will help bring the Dharma to tens of thousands...

In the middle of a nature park surrounded by meadows and lakes, only 60 kilometres north of Berlin, lies the so-called “Rote Burg“ (Red Castle): two old Ziegler buildings with about 850 square metres of floor space and surrounded by 37,000 square metres of meadows and oak forest.

In July 2020, Aryabandhu, Chairman of the Berlin Buddhist Centre, signed the purchase contract for the Rote Burg. This step was preceded by more than two years of intensive...
