Four short talks on Sangharakshita’s poem ‘The Four Gifts’ - plus general video of the day.

Four Gifts
I come to you with four gifts.
The first gift is a lotus-flower.
Do you understand?
My second gift is a golden net.
Can you recognize it?
My third gift is a shepherds’ round-dance.
Do your feet know how to dance?
My fourth gift is a garden planted in a wilderness.
Could you work there?

Gyproc & Flares: Sukhavati in the 1970s

Posted by Centre Team to Community Highlights on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:46

Siddhiratna sent this amazing short archive film of the very early days of the FWBO (former name for Triratna) in London in the 1970s as the new community there were preparing to build what would become the London Buddhist Centre in an old fire station…

“The videos were shot on Standard 8 film in what I think would be the mid ’70s, maybe ‘76, ‘77. The corrugated iron still up on the windows and Subhuti, Ratnaguna, Dharmapriya (?) and others are...

Subhuti - For the Welfare of the World (Audio)

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio to Community Highlights on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 23:01

A great talk by Subhuti, live streamed around the world from London at the time, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Triratna Buddhist Community. 

The fire of peace has been ignited in the world by the Buddha. It burns brightly today in the Triratna Order and movement, and inspired by Sangharakshita’s vision will burn well into the future – but how do we fan the flames so that the heat of practice transforms the world?

Chaired by Subhadramati....

A joyous day at Adhisthana

Posted by charlotte-l to Triratna@50 on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 22:27

It’s been a fantastic day here at Adhisthana and I feel absolutely spoilt. I have to admit I’m a bit tired now and I’m still struggling with the wifi - but here is a little post to get a feel for the day….

The atmosphere has been unbelievably positive. I’m sure that’s down to the depth and breadth of the threads of friendship that criss-cross through the people around me. Meditating together, nipping out to the shops with Akasajoti for croissants to...

Happy 50th birthday, Triratna!

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Sat, 8 Apr, 2017 - 22:22

This weekend Triratna sanghas around the world are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Triratna Buddhist Community’s foundation (as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order) in London, UK, on the evening of Friday 7th April 1967.

That evening is well described by Sangharakshita near the end of his volume of memoirs, Moving Against the Stream: the birth of a new Buddhist movement, which also gives an account of the context from which the FWBO emerged.

At 6.10 drove round to Vihara with Terry.
