On our last full day we heard from Triratna Hungary, with a presentation from mitra Tibor Derdak of the Dr Ambedkar High School, which offers gypsy girls and boys a way out of poverty and discrimination. As he said, quoting Subhuti, if the Buddha were to walk down the street in Hungary today, everyone would assume he was a gypsy.

Dhammamegha gave us an excellent talk on the importance of sangha and friendship: ‘Wisdom’s gathering: the difference that...

Dharma Drama - with Liz Armour

Posted by mokshini to Triratna International Gathering 2017 - What... on Wed, 14 Jun, 2017 - 12:57

One of my personal highlights of past International Gatherings is the daily dharma drama; the time of storytelling and enactment by children and adults alike in the evening before the puja: All are welcome to take part!

This year we are again lucky enough to have the multi-talented musician and children’s play worker Liz Armour at the International gathering. Everyone is invited,   young and old alike, to take part in the afternoon dharma drama session. We’ll first listen to...

Sangharakshita's 90th Birthday Classical Recital

Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Sun, 23 Aug, 2015 - 22:03

A beautiful, consistently very fine set of performances from members of the Triratna Buddhist Order to mark the 90th birthday of their teacher Urgyen Sangharakshita. The commitment and playing exemplifies the importance of the Arts in spiritual life, and in Triratna’s emphasis on this as part of a contemporary Buddhist path. Exquisite moments from the ‘Conscious Surrender to the Beautiful Weekend’.
