The Triratna Order and Community have been present in Valencia for more than 30 years. From simple beginnings the sangha has grown and become a feature of the life of the city, offering a chance to discover and explore the benefits of meditation on its own or in the context of a more committed Buddhist practice. Over the years the Valencia Buddhist Centre has reached many people with the Buddha’s teaching.

Support the Valencia sangha with a donation.

The Valencia Buddhist centre has also been a base for outreach and connection farther...

New Buddhist Centre for Barcelona

By Munisha on Tue, 25 Apr, 2017 - 23:59

Triratna’s sangha in Barcelona, Spain, bought their first Buddhist Centre last year. Just six weeks from opening they are working hard. They still need to raise €15,000. 

Sugarbha writes: “This is a really exciting project for Triratna Barcelona. Thanks to a legacy donation, in summer 2016 we secured a mortgage and purchased a building to convert into a centre. This is obviously a huge step forward for us, and for Triratna in mainland Europe.

Things are getting exciting for Valencia Buddhist Centre, Spain: they’re buying Triratna’s Spanish sangha’s first-ever retreat centre. Moksananda’s video gives a good impression of its flavour (4-minutes).
