Sangharakshita's diary

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 2 Mar, 2018 - 10:14

Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes from AdhisthanaUK:

“Coming to the end of February here at Adhisthana and the UK is gripped in a cold snap, which the media are calling the ‘Beast from the East’, while the ponds are frozen over and the garden is dusted in snow, Sanghadeva gets to take it easy, Yashodeva on the other hand is installing a new kitchen in the Dharma life course community, and a new tea...

5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online: #2 Gathering Together in Large Numbers

By Sadayasihi on Wed, 28 Feb, 2018 - 16:37

The growth of the bhikkhus is to be expected, not their decline, bhikkhus, so long as they assemble frequently and in large numbers; meet and disperse peacefully and attend to the affairs of the Sangha in concord..

From the Maha-parinibbana Sutta

The Buddha elaborated on the conditions for the Sangha to prosper, one of which, as we see above, was for his disciples to gather in large numbers. Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna...

Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes from AdhisthanaUK:

December
December is an unusual month here at Adhisthana, it becomes fairly quiet in the communities and quite a few people go away, either to see family or attend retreats. At the same time the centre swells and fills to capacity as the London Buddhist Centre holds its annual beginners winter retreat here. Bhante’s December largely followed a similar rhythm, being very quite with a slowing down...

Rainbows in the Sky - a new piece of writing by Sangharakshita

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 2 Feb, 2018 - 11:32

In this piece completed on 22 January 2018, Sangharakshita recalls rainbows from his childhood days through to his Going Forth in 1947 and most recently as appeared over Adhisthana on his ninetieth birthday. And he affirms the place of Padmasambhava - the Rainbow-bodied one - in the life of the Order from the very beginning, and explains that a remark he made in 2009 about a re-founding of the Order “can only be in...

5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online: #1 New Online Spaces and Physical Places

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 29 Jan, 2018 - 17:56

“Civic spaces are an extension of the community. When they work well, they serve as a stage for our public lives. If they function in their true civic role, they can be the settings where celebrations are held, where exchanges both social and economic take place, where friends run into each other, and where cultures mix.” [1]

Since The Buddhist Centre officially launched 5 years ago many web spaces have sprung into being which allow greater community building across Triratna as...
