« 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...

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 30 Jul, 2019 - 18:42

“To be a chair is not to be a particular kind of person…they are very different. But what they do have in common, is a love of Triratna, a love of the Dharma and a longing to help…”

The 2019 Summer ECA - European Chairs’ Assembly - took place at Padmaloka in the UK.  We are joined by Aryanita from Paris, Vanaraji from Mid-Essex, Jayaraja from Buddhafield and Amritasiddhi from Nagpur, India, all reflecting on how...

A l’occasion du mois d’action bouddhiste, Ujumani a donné une conférence sur le thème « Éthique bouddhique et environnement ». Ujumani explore les liens entre enseignement bouddhiste, préceptes et respect de l’environnement … ainsi que les pistes pour mieux vivre cette interdépendance.

Merci Ujumani pour cette belle conférence !

Les travaux ont commencé ! The building work has started!

By Vassika on Tue, 18 Jun, 2019 - 15:04

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...

In this short film Aryanita, the current Chair, and Vassika, the former Chair, give us an update on their search for a new home for the Paris Buddhist Centre. A lovely, light, spacious place has been found in a peaceful part of Paris, around the corner from a beautiful park. The purchase will be complete in May and building work will start to transform it from a doctors’ surgery into a Buddhist Centre, with the plan for it to...

New Buddhist Centre - nearly there!

By Vassika on Mon, 15 Apr, 2019 - 17:29

Here in Paris, spring has arrived and we are preparing for a move into a new Buddhist Centre.

We have found a lovely light spacious place in a peaceful part of Paris, around the corner from a beautiful park. In six weeks, the purchase will be complete and building work will start to transform it from a doctors’ surgery into a Buddhist Centre, which we hope to open in September.

We have managed to raise enough money to cover the purchase and a large...

Nouveau Centre bouddhiste - nous y sommes presque!

By Vassika on Mon, 15 Apr, 2019 - 17:24

Ici à Paris, le printemps est arrivé et nous nous préparons à nous installer dans un nouveau Centre bouddhiste.

Nous avons trouvé un beau local lumineux et spacieux dans un quartier calme et à deux pas d’un joli parc. Dans six semaines, nous aurons les clefs et les travaux commenceront pour transformer un cabinet médical en Centre bouddhiste. Nous espérons pouvoir l’ouvrir en septembre.

Nous avons réussi à lever assez d’argent pour couvrir l’achat et une grande partie des travaux, mais pour être sûr...

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 29 Jan, 2019 - 17:25

Ujumani from the Paris Buddhist Centre writes: “After 11 years, Vassika has handed on the chairmanship of the Paris Buddhist Centre to Aryanita.

Après quelque 11 ans, Vassika cesse d’être la présidente du Centre bouddhiste de Paris, et Aryanita la remplace : nous avons été nombreux aujourd’hui au Centre bouddhiste à célébrer ce passage, venus de Bruxelles, d’Angleterre, du Bourget-du-Lac, de Clermont-Ferrand, d’Argelès, et bien sûr de Paris et de sa région - incluant des amis du Centre de longue date, y compris certains qui ne...
