Triratna: Dharma, Friendships, Work

By viriyalila on Thu, 6 Feb, 2014 - 16:13This past month we’ve been reflecting on some distinctive Triratna traits with our weekly FBA Podcasts and twice-weekly Dharmabytes. With talks from practitioners speaking about their work in Buddhist Centers, team-based right livelihood businesses, and as communicators of the Dharma through facilitating study, leading retreats and just being friends to one another!
