Join the LBC team at Vajrasana

We’re looking for another Dharmachari or GFR Mitra to come and live and work with us at Vajrasana.

Vajrasana is a completely new Buddhist environment – it’s feels more like a temple.

Working at Vajrasana you’ll be fully part of the LBC Team and, as such, you’ll enjoy regular contact with the guys in Bethnal Green as well as good training, opportunities and a generous support package.

Do get in touch if you’re interested: jnanaruchi [at] lbc.org.uk; 07799 776 754...

Gyproc & Flares: Sukhavati in the 1970s

Posted by Centre Team to Community Highlights on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:46

Siddhiratna sent this amazing short archive film of the very early days of the FWBO (former name for Triratna) in London in the 1970s as the new community there were preparing to build what would become the London Buddhist Centre in an old fire station…

Subhuti - For the Welfare of the World (Audio)

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Community Highlights on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:01

A great talk by Subhuti, live streamed around the world from London at the time, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Triratna Buddhist Community. 

The fire of peace has been ignited in the world by the Buddha. It burns brightly today in the Triratna Order and movement, and inspired by Sangharakshita’s vision will burn well into the future – but how do we fan the flames so that the heat of practice transforms the world?

Chaired by Subhadramati....

The spiritual community, the Sangha, is the ideal context in which we can practise the Dharma. It is also a force for good in the world and an ideal in its own right. But how is the Sangha sustained? Continuing our exploration of ‘The Four Sangharavastus’ (or Means...
