What the World Needs Now: Triratna’s Gift

By Centre Team on Thu, 20 Jan, 2022 - 17:19

Saturday, April 9 2022

Triratna Day 2022 will focus on our contribution to the world: a vision of truth, communicated in a culture of kalyana mitrata (“beautiful friendship”), for the benefit of all. The day will be an experience of that, especially of being part of a global network of friendships for the good.

We’ll have four events—meditation, talk, a seminar and a puja—hosted from Adhisthana, Berlin, and the Americas. Translation will be available for some sessions. And our symbol will be Bhante Sangharakshita’s...

The Buddhist Centre Online Highlights from 2021

By Centre Team on Sun, 26 Dec, 2021 - 12:58

2021 has been another rollercoaster of a year: with the three of the traditional ‘four sights’ of old age, sickness and death an ever present backdrop. But 2021 has also been interspersed with moments of beauty, generosity, connectedness and hope.

Our team has been busy this year keeping the fourth sight—the Dharma—alive; fostering community—sangha—at a time of continued uncertainty.

Looking back over the year, here are some of our highlights from the year that was 2021:

Chairs' Letter – March 2021

By ratnadharini on Wed, 31 Mar, 2021 - 15:23

Dear Order members and friends,

The main international College meeting is in November and this year we are also meeting for a weekend in March and July, as well as parallel gatherings in our individual College Kulas. (The Kula system is intentionally flexible, to allow for the different number of people training for ordination in different parts of the world, as well as the geographic spread of Public Preceptors in each Kula.) 

Apart from the option...

Seven Papers by Subhuti with Sangharakshita

Seven Papers by Subhuti with Sangharakshita

By Candradasa on Fri, 12 Apr, 2013 - 21:52

To round off our ‘Triratna anniversaries’ week, here is the appropriately definitive complete set of seven papers by Subhuti and Sangharakshita, documenting their conversations over the past few years about the whole basis of our approach to the Dharma within the Triratna Buddhist Community.

In Subhuti’s words, each attempts to follow through the implications of Sangharakshita’s statement, in the first paper, What is the Western Buddhist Order?, that the Triratna Buddhist Order...

Public Ordination in New Zealand on Triratna Weekend!

By ratnavyuha on Mon, 8 Apr, 2013 - 19:35

A warm Triratna hello from Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre in New Zealand! We had a very special celebration today with the public ordination of Nityadana (which translates into ‘he who is constantly giving’ … previously known as Guy Parsons). Nityadana and Sanjiva, who is his private preceptor, had spent the previous two weeks on retreat in one of the solitary huts.

There were about 40-50 of us at the public ordination ceremony which was conducted...
