Closure of Clear Vision

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 3 Aug, 2020 - 10:47

It is with sadness that the Trustees of Clear Vision have announced its closure from September 2020. Over the past 35 years Clear Vision has been a vital part of the FWBO/Triratna Community having documented much of our community’s history through video, particularly Newsreels, Triratna Newsbytesfilming Sangharakshita’s talks, events and tours, and much more.

Rejoicing in Kamalashila – Satyaraja

By satyaraja on Thu, 21 May, 2020 - 15:14

During the March Area College gathering for the UK, Ireland and Europe, Kamalashila attended for an evening to have a farewell following his retirement from the Preceptors’ College at the end of last year. He was able to share some of his current threads of practice and inspiration, and a number of those present rejoiced in him. Here we share two of those contributions from Sanghadevi and Satyaraja.

I first met Kamalashila in the early part of 1980 at...

Sangha Day rejoicings

By Christine on Sun, 9 Nov, 2014 - 14:01I rejoice with delight in the Karaniya Metta Kula!
