Bhante’s 90th birthday fundraising last year raised well over £100,000 for the publication of his Complete Works, a job which is well under way and to which Bhante himself added more money specifically for translations.

British public preceptor Saddhaloka recently made a one-week visit to Odessa, Ukraine’s third largest city, on the shore of the Black Sea. He writes:

“Back in 2000 Dima Hovansky and a group of friends who practise the martial art Shorinji Kempo were pursuing their interest in Buddhism. On an alternative book...

Life is King in Russian too

By Munisha on Thu, 16 Jan, 2014 - 16:40Suvannavira is Triratna’s emissary to Russia. Living in a hostel in Moscow, he teaches Dharma and meditation - and publishes Sangharakshita’s books in Russian, and has translated all the Foundation Year materials for the mitra study course! He writes:

“Poets and poems have long been loved and revered in Russia. Most dear is Alexander Pushkin, considered the Russian Shakespeare. Be careful if you are asked by Russian if you ‘know’ the poems of Pushkin. They don’t mean...

By lokabandhu on Tue, 6 Aug, 2013 - 08:34Here is a video, in Russian, made by Suvannavira of the Metta Bhavana (Loving-kindness) meditation where people can practise along with him. It was shot on retreat in Poland.

Что такое медитация “метта бхавана”? Как правильно медитировать? Учитесь медитировать с помощью Суваннавиры, члена буддийского ордена “Триратна”, который уже двадцать лет практикует медитацию и десять лет преподает её в Париже и в Москве.

Russian Dharma Translation Project bears fruit

By lokabandhu on Sat, 6 Oct, 2012 - 15:39Suvannavira writes from Moscow, where a small Triratna Buddhist group is steadily taking shape under his guidance - and where their Russian Buddhist web presence far outweighs their physical numbers, thanks to his web skills and their Russian Dharma Translation Project. He’s sent us an update on their latest initiatives, written by Saddhaloka -

“The Russian Translation Project got underway in the late 1990s when, during a visit to St Petersburg, a Russian translation of Sangharakshita’s “Guide...
