Could you be the International Movement Coordinator?

Could you be the International Movement Coordinator?

By aparajita on Tue, 23 Aug, 2022 - 15:28

Since the inception of the International Council (IC) no single person or organisational body has held responsibility for, or held an overview of, the international Movement strand.  The international Movement comprises six geographical Areas, each of which has various levels of internal coordination but little cross-area communication. Consequently, the structure of the international Movement has remained relatively undeveloped in comparison with the structures of the Order and College.  The Order has two international Order Convenors, an established and effective...

Chairs' Letter – November 2021

By ratnadharini on Tue, 30 Nov, 2021 - 21:54

Dear Order members and friends,

This month the annual international College meeting was a complex hybrid affair, taking place partly in person at Adhisthana, and partly online. Akasajoti came up with a schedule that not only took into account the different time zones, but also maximised crossover by shuffling us into different configurations; she even set up interactive zoom screen in the shrine room that meant we could all see and hear each other.

We began...

Chairs' Letter – March 2021

By ratnadharini on Wed, 31 Mar, 2021 - 15:23

Dear Order members and friends,

The main international College meeting is in November and this year we are also meeting for a weekend in March and July, as well as parallel gatherings in our individual College Kulas. (The Kula system is intentionally flexible, to allow for the different number of people training for ordination in different parts of the world, as well as the geographic spread of Public Preceptors in each Kula.) 

Apart from the option...

Bhante’s Birthday Puja

Bhante’s Birthday Puja

By Khemabandhu on Tue, 25 Aug, 2020 - 15:26

On Wednesday 26th August, Adhisthana will be celebrating the anniversary of Bhante Sangharakshita’s birthday, as will be happening throughout Triratna. I find it hard to believe that only two years ago Bhante was still alive and would have been enjoying the celebrations at Adhisthana – probably with a vegan coffee and walnut cake that he would share with all those around him.

It is also the day when the Triratna centres continue with the 108 Year Puja that happens every year. I...

As a special treat for you as we countdown to #buddhaday we are releasing a series of dharma reflections and evocations of the Buddha over the week…⠀

For our Triratna international Buddha Day celebration, on the occasion of the full Moon day itself, Padmavajra introduces us to the story of the Buddha and the Naga King, Mucalinda. With characteristic resonant depth, Padmavajra evokes the meaning and significance of the Buddha’s Enlightenment, and his subsequent encounter with Mucalinda.

He then...

The International Course at Adhisthana

The International Course at Adhisthana

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 22 Jan, 2019 - 16:49

The International Course took place in October 2018 in Adhisthana with 14 Order Members who hold positions of responsibility in Triratna from the US, Germany, India, Australia, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Mexico. The course ran for four weeks and was an opportunity to develop the deep connections and shared vision that our founding generation forged in 1970s squats. 

Here is a short video from Future Dharma about the course.
