Vidyatara stands in for the College’s intrepid reporter, Parami and has a chat with Karunadevi & Padmavajra. Tonight’s topics include discipleship, views, consciousness & friendship within the College.
Tonight Parami chats to Sanghadevi - a public preceptor for over 20 years - and Maitreyabandhu who joined the college in March of this year. As well as their impressions of the college, they movingly share with us their experience of a Skype meeting earlier today with Vajragita. Vajragita is not with us as she is unwell with terminal cancer and in today’s Skype with the college, she shared her thoughts and feelings about facing her death.
On day 2 of the College meeting Dhammadinna, one of the most experienced of the College, and Moksananda, member for the Spanish speaking community, talk about how their own Dharma practice is the basis for holding responsibility as a Preceptor.
Adhisthana is again playing host to the biannual College of Preceptors’ meeting, with 25 of the 34 active members on-site until 20 November. Each evening we’ll be uploading interviews with a range of the Preceptors who will talking to Parami - College member and International Order Convenor - about their daily highlights. A written summary of the meeting will also be available after it’s finished.

On 20 September 2014 at the Dharmagiri Retreat Centre in Sweden, Viriyavasin was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order by Public Preceptor Satyaraja. This public Ordination followed the first Ordination Retreat held in Sweden.
