By Centre Team on Wed, 19 Oct, 2022 - 01:24

Join us for an intimate celebration of Sangha Day live from Adhisthana in the heart of the English countryside.

Urgyen Sangharakshita once called Going for Refuge, “The central act of the Buddhist life”. Paramabandhu leads an international event exploring how this understanding relates to the community we all take part in, and finds its place at the very heart of our practice in Triratna.

Peacock Plumes in Southampton - Introducing The Amitabha Project

By Centre Team on Tue, 1 Mar, 2022 - 12:00

Since opening the centre in the converted premises of the old Plume of Feathers pub in the St Mary’s district four years ago, The Southampton Buddhist Center has been through a period of what feels like an incubation of new sangha lives. During the Covid pandemic, 20 people have had their mitra ceremonies. There have been two local ordinations and numerous ordination requests.

Now that the lockdowns have eased, these lives are interacting together in a range of endeavors that...

International Sangha Day: May Our Communication Be Sangha

International Sangha Day: May Our Communication Be Sangha

By Centre Team on Fri, 10 Sep, 2021 - 20:51

Sunday November 21
Sangha, spiritual community, can be described as a network of friendships based on what’s of most value. In the company of those committed to the Buddha’s teachings – past and present – we can express and deepen metta, loving-kindness, in our deeds, words and thoughts.

This year’s International Sangha Day celebration focuses on communication because communication is a crucial part of the practice and development of Sangha. At its worst, communication can cause conflict and confusion, polarisation and the...

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy back in print

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 27 Jan, 2021 - 12:08

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy (Who is the Buddha?, What is the Dharma? and What is the Sangha?) is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Buddhism. It provides an elucidation of the three central principles on which Buddhism is based: the Buddha, who represents the principle of ‘awakening’; the Dharma, the teachings and practices that cultivate awakening; and the Sangha, the principle of spiritual friendship. For quite some time, both Who is the Buddha? and What is the Sangha? have been out of print. We’re pleased...
