Chairs' Letter – May 2022

By ratnadharini on Tue, 31 May, 2022 - 18:50

Dear Order Members and friends,

As well as being College Chair, I’ve come to hold various other responsibilities within Triratna, including currently being a Centre President and involved in the International Council. Looking back, becoming part of the women’s ordination team at Tiratanaloka was probably the most significant factor in shaping this life; but actually it goes back even further than that and has really emerged from a network of kalyanamitrata…

I first encountered the FWBO / Triratna in London, when I was...

Chairs' Letter – May 2021

By ratnadharini on Mon, 31 May, 2021 - 21:54

Dear Order Members and friends,

Last month one of my deputies, Amrutdeep, wrote from his perspective about the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic in India. 16 Order members and over 35 Dhammamitras died in India in the last couple of months and it’s still pretty grim; if you’d like to help, you can read more about some of the ways in which you can give here.

Its poignant that over the past...

Ordinations in a Time of Covid-19: Watch Upcoming Public Ordinations Online

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 22 Sep, 2020 - 15:42

The impact of the coronavirus has been felt on all aspects of our daily lives as well as the life of our sangha - severely curtailing the ability to hold in-person retreats, including ordination retreats. Ordination is a significant point in the lives of Dharma farers in our community: many of whom have been training for ordination for a number of years, in preparation for joining the Triratna Buddhist Order. The public ordination ceremony marks the deepening of their commitment...

Triratna Responds to the Coronavirus

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 27 Mar, 2020 - 09:57

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread across the world, how have Triratna Buddhist Centres and team-based right livelihood businesses been responding?

By now most Triratna Buddhist Centres and groups have closed their doors - but many have opened up on the digital universe and invited their sanghas to join them online. Various Triratna Centres across the world are now offering courses classes, pujas, urban retreats and other events online. Now is a great time to try out joining in some of the...

Interviewing Samata

By Dharmaprabha on Thu, 7 Mar, 2019 - 12:30

Danasamudra writes about her interview with Samata:

“In December last year I drove down to Tiratanaloka to interview Samata. She was staying there for several months before going on the three month retreat with Vijayamala and Vessantara. It was appropriate that I talked to her there because she was one of the women who brought Tiratanaloka, and all that it offers, into being.

Those of us who have joined the Movement and Order more recently have very little idea of how different things were...
