Sanghadagen 17 november
Alla är varmt välkomna till Sanghadagen, den buddhistiska högtid då vi firar och gläds åt den andliga gemenskapen.
Denna gång är temat “Sanghans pionjärer – då och nu”. Det blir personliga berättelser om hur sanghan vuxit, från Triratnas begynnelse i Sverige på 80-talet fram till idag. Vi kommer också rikta blicken framåt, mot ett ’nytt center’ i Stockholm.

Viryabodhi talked about the significance of Sangha Day and the Bodhisattva ideal (including the 4 sangrahavastus). Satyaprabha talked and showed projected images of Sangharakshita Land project (to keep the sangha informed of developments there),...
August 29th we held our first mitra ceremonies. Bettye and Oz both started coming to the center soon after we opened in October 2011. They are both fired up by the Dharma and grateful to have found the Triratna Community to practice with. Sadhu to you both!
Say hello to Bettye & Oz, the newest members of the international Triratna Mitra Sangha! ‘Mitra’ means friend, and Bettye & Oz, good friends to the Portsmouth Buddhist Centre in New Hampshire, give us a few words straight after a lovely simple ceremony to express their commitment to the Buddha’s path as they understand it in their lives… Congratulations!
