Chatrul (ou Chetrul) Sangye Dorje
18 juin 1913 - 31 décembre 2014

Le dernier des 8 maîtres de Sangharakshita encore en vie, Chatrul Sangye Dorje, est décédé dans son monastère népalais, semble-t-il paisiblement.

C’était une personnalité excentrique et imprévisible, qui a vécu une vie errante dans les montagnes de l’Himalaya. Il est...

Remembering Chetul (Chatral) Sangye Dorje, 1913-2015

By Candradasa on Tue, 5 Jan, 2016 - 22:31

Here’s a forthright and passionate talk by Vajratara, taking as its starting point the great contemporary Tibetan teacher Chatral (Chetul) Sangye Dorje, who died at the turn of the year. Vajratara considers his relationship to practice in Triratna, via his giving of the Green Tara practice to Sangharakshita. The main focus, however, is the need to practice the Dharma for others as part of a meaningful community, and she argues her case with a balance of down-to-earth humour and...

Death Of Chatral Sangye Dorje

By Candradasa on Tue, 5 Jan, 2016 - 21:39

Chatral Sangye Dorje (also variously spelled Chetrul or Chetrul), the last surviving of Sangharakshita’s teachers, was born in 1913 and died on 31st December.

This is an excellent, at times very funny, introduction to him by Karunamati, who was fortunate enough to meet with him in Nepal as part of her medical work there with the Green Tara Trust

At the time this talk was given the great Tibetan Master - one of Sangharakshita’s eight main teachers - was 93 years old and...

Donations flood in for Nepal

By Munisha on Sat, 2 May, 2015 - 17:05

Donations to Green Tara Trust in Nepal are now well over GBP13,000 - not including the GBP5,000 donated by Karuna Trust. 

It’s not too late to give. Make a Buddha Day donation!

While Nepal’s government reports today that almost none of the aid pledged by foreign governments has arrived yet, it’s good to hear from Green Tara Trust that your money is already there and working.

Local worker Ram writes “First funds from donations are coming through, that will be used mainly for...

Le Népal

By Ujumani on Tue, 28 Apr, 2015 - 21:13

J’imagine que vous avez tous entendu parler du séisme au Népal, et de la situation difficile de centaine de milliers, voire de millions de gens là-bas. Peut-être voulez-vous faire quelque chose, mais vous ne savez pas trop quoi ni comment - aider financièrement, par exemple, mais qui et comment ?

J’ai reçu un email de Karunamati, une membre de l’Ordre qui travaille au Népal, pour le Green Tara Trust, une association dont elle est une des fondatrices, et qui aide...
