« Nous avons reçu tellement de soutien - beaucoup de gens étaient intéressés par l’idée d’un nouveau centre à Paris. Cela a été un travail d’équipe international - sans la communauté internationale de Triratna, il n’aurait pas été possible d’avoir ce local ». - Aryanita, présidente du Centre bouddhiste Triratna de Paris.
 
Après plusieurs collectes de fonds et un travail acharné de la part de nombreuses personnes, et en particulier de Vassika, le nouveau Centre bouddhiste Triratna de Paris a été...

I visited the Centre yesterday and already walls had disappeared and there was rubble everywhere! It’s very exciting to see the space changing shape.

Now I’m busy thinking about floors, kitchen units, paints and lighting…

I’m delighted to say that we have managed to pass the half-way mark with our fundraising, which is very encouraging, but we still need help to reach our target.

If you’d like to participate, please have a look at our fundraising page or centrebouddhisteparis [at] gmail.com...

Dedication of the new Wellington Buddhist Centre

On Tuesday 5th March just over 30 Sangha members, including Vajrajyoti from Auckland and Shamani from Christchurch, crowded into the old Wellington Buddhist Centre reception to ritually mark their move to a new Centre. The move is an important one for the development of the Wellington Sangha - even if it is only 3 metres across the hallway - as it is into a space twice the size, and infinitely more functional, than the current space.

The final move is still a few weeks...

The Refit of Our New Space

We’re still inching towards having the refit complete on our new Centre so we can fully move in. We used the shrine area today for part of our Order Day but actually moving in and relinquishing the old space is a few weeks away. 

It looked like things were moving quickly late September….

Our move is getting closer! There’s a list of things still to be completed in terms of the refit before we can make our big shift 3 metres across the hallway into a space twice the size and infinitely more functional!

We’ve dedicated the space and I have copied below greetings from Nagabodhi our current President and from Jnanadhara our future President.

It shouldn’t be long now.

Dear friends,
As you probably know, I had to cut short my trip and fly back to ...
