In Spring 2017 we lost our Buddhist Center to a fire. Thanks to the great generosity and hard work of lots of people, the community recovered, deepened and strengthened. And we’ve gone on together since, renewing the Portsmouth sangha in some beautiful ways here in town.
Aryaloka is a Triratna Center located an hour north of Boston, MA. It is one of Triratna’s largest centers, with an active schedule of classes and retreats and a thriving sangha. We have an immediate opening for Center Caretaker. This may be either a residential or non-residential position.
Please see our website for position descriptions and application instructions.

It is an international festival, celebrated by may Triratna centers and other Buddhist groups, and it’s fueled by metta. Metta is the strong intention to create Loving Kindness for all, and it’s embodied in the desire to act for the benefit of the world. Practicing this is at the heart of everything we do in the Triratna Buddhist Community. Let’s turn that intention into action for BAM...
