Dharma Day Celebration

By viriyalila on Wed, 25 Jun, 2014 - 17:03On July 13th, we’ll be celebrating Dharma Day, marking the Buddha’s first teaching, 10 am - 1pm.

Soon after his Enlightenment the Buddha rose from where he had been sitting, went to find his former disciples and shared his experience with them. This event, which happened at a place called Sarnath in northern India, might be called the start of the Buddhist religion and it is this that Dharma Day celebrates.

Una guía acerca de hacerse mitra en la Comunidad Budista Triratna

Una guía acerca de hacerse mitra en la Comunidad Budista Triratna

By Candradasa on Tue, 3 Jun, 2014 - 17:18La palabra sánscrita ‘mitra’ simplemente significa ‘amigo’. Hacerse mitra es profundizar tu relación de amistad con la Orden Budista Triratna, lo que puede ocurrir cuando tu compromiso con sus ideales, valores y prácticas ha alcanzado un cierto nivel. Un mitra es alguien que ha hecho lo que nosotros llamamos un compromiso ‘provisional’ de practicar el Dharma en el contexto de nuestra comunidad espiritual.

Becoming a Mitra in the Triratna Buddhist Community

Becoming a Mitra in the Triratna Buddhist Community

By Candradasa on Thu, 19 Sep, 2013 - 17:35

The Triratna Buddhist Community is open to all those who wish to practise Buddhism.

Most people encounter Triratna through a meditation or Buddhism class at a Triratna centre. Everyone who has contact with Triratna is considered a friend. However someone who wants to make a particular connection with our community and see their Buddhist  practice in that context can ask to become a ‘Mitra’ (which simply means ‘friend’ in Sanskrit).
