Translating the Dharma into Hebrew

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 13 Mar, 2020 - 11:09

Accessing the Dharma in your own language can make a significant difference to a person’s ability to practice. The Triratna Translations Board was set up at the end of 2015 to promote and coordinate translation projects in many languages and have enabled the translations of many Triratna books.

The latest of these is What is the Dharma by Sangharakshita, which has now been translated into Hebrew.

Prakashika, born in Israel, but now living in Australia,...

Triratna in Italian, for just £265

By Munisha on Mon, 25 Dec, 2017 - 16:48

Born and brought up in Italy, Val is a mitra training for ordination in Brighton, UK. She’s a published author in both English and Italian, now working with Triratna’s Translations Board, who say she is enthusiastic, inspired...

Day 8 report from the ECA summer meeting

By Munisha on Tue, 25 Jul, 2017 - 15:32

Here in Suffolk, UK, days come and go, the rain pours down, the duck family continues to parade around (see previous report), and the Chairs are still meditating, doing puja, chatting, walking and listening to presentations and small groups.

They’ve looked at the work of Triratna’s Translations Board; members of the College and Adhisthana Kula have visited to explain the work they’re doing to address painful aspects of Triratna’s past; and the ECA’s Safeguarding officer, Munisha, has...

News from Triratna's Spanish Translations Board

By Munisha on Wed, 29 Mar, 2017 - 13:05

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. Shuddhavajra did much pioneering work, including founding the publishing house Tres Joyas (Three Jewels) and beginning the difficult task of creating a Dharmic vocabulary in Spanish. Unfortunately Tres Joyas no longer continues but in recent years, the ...

Triratna translations bonanza!

By Munisha on Mon, 13 Mar, 2017 - 10:06

Suvannavira is a member of the Triratna Translations Board and lives in Moscow.

He writes: 

The Triratna Translations Board came into existence at the end of 2015, to promote and co-ordinate translations and publications projects. One of our tasks has been to administer funds made available for translations by Bhante Sangharakshita, following his hugely successful 90th birthday appeal in 2015.  

Of the £30,000 given for translating his books, £5,000 went to projects in India and the remaining £25,000 was given to projects elsewhere in the...

New Books for the New Year

By Liz_Bassett on Tue, 3 Jan, 2017 - 14:36

Happy New Year! I’m busy getting back into work and writing thank you notes for pressies received over the festive period. The best presents you can get I reckon, are books.  And they’re also the best to give because they can change lives. That’s why FutureDharma Fund supports the Translation Project, which is producing high quality translations of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma.

By supporting translators working in a range of languages the Translations Project is helping make the Dharma available to more...
