BAM!  Thanks to Dave for talking to us this evening about fracking/anti-fracking and a film called The Bentley Effect https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CLnRD3neUFo
It stimulated questions and discussion and also turned us towards questions about what we can do locally and individually - buy local, alternative sources of power, cost v ethics, on-line activism. At the end of the session Dave suggested Lend With Care.  He told us that Lendwithcare.org is a revolutionary way to help people in the developing world to...

A Reconciliation Process

By lokeshvara on Thu, 13 Apr, 2017 - 14:37

From the outside Triratna can look like a homogenous organisation, but from within for much of our history it’s looked more anarchic and un-systematic, relying on personal connections with each project or centre financially and legally independent.  This has had many advantages but one significant disadvantage is that when relations have broken down there haven’t always been sufficient formal or consistent ways of acknowledging and repairing harm or restoring connection.

We place a high value on friendship in our community.  One of...

Letter from the Chair of the College of Public Preceptors to all Order Members

By saddhaloka on Fri, 31 Mar, 2017 - 23:56

Following the March meeting of the College of Public Preceptors, Saddhaloka, as Chair of the College, sent a message to all Order members. The ten-day meeting had been concerned with issues currently being raised regarding the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community, and Saddhaloka wanted to communicate the position of the College on these issues. We are now posting the letter, slightly adapted for a wider readership, on the Adhisthana Kula blog, to make it available to all who are interested. The Kula will be continuing...

Women, Men and Angels: A Personal Statement by Subhuti

Women, Men and Angels: A Personal Statement by Subhuti

By Subhuti on Fri, 3 Mar, 2017 - 14:07

Introduction by Parami
In 1994, a book called ‘Women, Men and Angels’ was published, with the subtitle: ‘An Inquiry into the Relative Spiritual Aptitudes of Men and Women’. It was written by Subhuti, a senior Triratna Order Member, with the intention of elaborating on an impression or ‘idea’ that had originally come from Sangharakshita. While I am sure this was not Subhuti’s intention, the book had a painful effect on many people – especially women – even causing some to...

'Just Then Or Not At All'

By Singhamanas on Fri, 13 Jan, 2017 - 11:29

Fifty years ago this April, Sangharakshita founded a new Buddhist movement that was to change the lives of thousands of people. What fostered such unlikely success? Singhamanas on a unique point in history

We already know the story of the Swinging Sixties: LSD, the CND, Beats, Beatles and baby-boomers. Maybe we’re even familiar with the story of Sangharakshita, the founder of the community that the London Buddhist Centre is a part of: the young British signalman going AWOL after...

“Dear brothers and sisters, Bhante saw the consultant today who says that the pneumonia infection seems to be clear and that he may get home in the next couple of days, which is great news.
