The Inauguration of Toluca Buddhist Centre in Mexico

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 21 Jan, 2020 - 12:04

On Friday 17th January, the Toluca Buddhist Centre in Mexico was formally inaugurated. The Toluca Buddhist Centre arose from the friendship of three friends who wanted to share their practice with each other and with other people.

Nagapriya writes from Mexico about the work of Triratna’s Spanish Translations Board.

“The translation into Spanish of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s work and that of other Triratna writers, began in the early 1990s with the prodigious efforts of a Mexican (ex-) Order member then known as Shuddhavajra.
