Here, reciting his poem ‘Perhaps’, Paramananda extends an invitation to the sangha:
“Come and join Bodhilila and myself for our online retreat, Our Breathing Body starting on 2 May. This will be an opportunity to explore how the breath can help us open our minds and our hearts to the world.”
This event marks the start of a coming together of all those in Triratna for whom concern for the environment is an intrinsic part of their Dharma practice. We will be gathering online on Earth Day (April 22nd) for a period of meditation, sitting in solidarity with this beautiful fleeting world. So wherever you are in the world please join us.
