Coronavirus Grants for Triratna Order Members

By Sadayasihi on Wed, 1 Apr, 2020 - 18:21

The Abhayaratna Trust is responding to the financial hardship resulting from the spread of Covid-19 by offering short term relief through cash grants of up to £500 per Order member as support at this time.

Many Order members are self-employed and the sudden loss of income has left some of them without the resources to pay food and utility bills and with rent shortfalls. Access to state benefits can be too slow or not available in many countries.

Urgyen Sangharakshita On Discipleship: A Postscript To ‘What Is The Western Buddhist Order?’

By Mahamati on Mon, 1 May, 2017 - 16:06

On 12th April Sangharakshita sent a letter to all members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, A Note on ‘Disciple’: a Postscript to ‘What is the Western Buddhist Order?’

We now share this here as in this letter Sangharakshita has clarified an  important aspect of the relationship of Order members to him, and him to them, and this is no doubt of relevance to the wider Triratna Community.
