A Celebration to Unite the World - 50 Years of Triratna celebrated in India

These images give a small window on all that is happening in India. We are celebrating 50 years of evidence that the spirit of Enlightenment  has the power to unite and harmonise diverse cultures.

50 BALLOONS over Stockholm

By Viryabodhi on Fri, 7 Apr, 2017 - 07:25

Celebrating 50 years of Triratna in the world, a few of us in the Stockholm sangha went up to Skinnarviksberget, with a view over parts of central Stockholm (the Town Hall in the background), with 50 balloons in yellow, blue and red. They of course symbolised the three jewels, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. We recited the Transference of merits and self-surrender from the sevenfold puja and then let the balloons go. They wonderfully ‘sailed away’ over the sky towards the north. After 5...

Future Dharma Fund launches #Triratna50 Appeal

By Liz_Bassett on Thu, 6 Apr, 2017 - 16:02

Exactly 50 years ago today Urgyen Sangharakshita dedicated the Triratna Meditation and Shrine room (yes it was called Triratna!) in a basement below a shop in Covent Garden.

So many lives have been transformed by the Buddhist movement that grew from that simple ceremony. 

Today FutureDharma Fund launches the Triratna50 Appeal will raise £500,000 this year to ensure that Triratna’s contribution to the world in its second 50 years is as extraordinary as in its first. 

Here are some of the projects that we’re funding with...

Happy 50th Birthday Triratna!

By Vajrashura on Thu, 6 Apr, 2017 - 13:12

This week is the 50th anniversary of the founding of our community, the Triratna Buddhist Community!

On the evening of April 6th, 1967, around 24 people gathered in a room in London where they recited a ceremony specially written by Sangharakshita to inaugurate this new Buddhist movement.

Now, all these years later, the Triratna Buddhist Community has grown into a worldwide community of men and women inspired by the Buddha-Dharma, including our own Sangha here in Dublin.

On Sunday 9th April, 10am - 5pm, we’ll be...
