Happy Dhamma Day!

By vajratara on Tue, 16 Jul, 2019 - 15:40

Happy Dhamma Day everyone! A day to celebrate the gift of the Dhamma we have been given, and to enable others to benefit from the same gift.


‘Go now and wander for the welfare and happiness of happiness of many, out of compassion for the world, for the benefit, welfare and happiness of gods and humans. Teach the Dhamma that is beautiful in the beginning, beautiful in the middle and beautiful in the end, with the meaning and the letter.

We have a new opportunity to support Dhamma work in India by joining the India Dhamma Trust team as a trustee treasurer.

Triratna on the BBC World Service

By vajratara on Mon, 18 Apr, 2016 - 12:45

Listen to this recent BBC radio documentary featuring our very own Maitriveer Nagarjuna! It is about why the Dalits, after generations of oppression, are converting to Buddhism. An interesting listen in that it highlights the problems of caste, which it calls apartheid, as well as the current difficulties the new Buddhists face as they leave the dominant Hindu culture. However, I think it presents conversion to Buddhism as a reaction against Hinduism and underplays the inspiration of following the Buddhist path...

A story from India of what friendship can do

A story from India of what friendship can do

By vajratara on Tue, 29 Sep, 2015 - 12:14

I’m thinking about the upcoming Order Retreat in Bodhgaya, and it reminded me to post some of my thoughts from my visit to India last year.

It soon became evident that the Order retreat was powered by a band of brothers, some very good friends who had taken on organising the retreat.  Watching their ease of working with each other, their laughter and joking, it reminded me of the team at Tiratanaloka and I was interested to hear their story.  

They met in...
