Sub35 Online Day Retreat: Why Join An Order?

By vajratara on Wed, 14 Jul, 2021 - 11:35

Saturday 4 September

Why join an Order? Isn’t enough to simply practice Buddhism without joining anything? Vajratara and Karunadhi from the women’s ordination team along with Dharmacharinis from the young people’s steering group, will communicate a glimpse of the vision of the Order and the potential of spiritual friendship. The Order is more than it appears to be, and to realise that, we must also realise that we are more than we appear to be…

Join us for an online day for young people training...

Migrant Labourers - Tired Feet: Walk in Solidarity

Migrant Labourers - Tired Feet: Walk in Solidarity

I hope we all remember how migrant labourers suffered during the sudden lockdown last year in India. The first thing that comes to my mind are images of ‘tired feet’ and ’hunger’. I can not believe millions of feet had to walk thousands of miles to get their homes, and many of them never made it.

One of my inspirations from India is Ashif Shaikh, the founder of ‘Jan Sahas’ (‘People’s...

Young women's weekend retreat: The Cremation Ground & the Skull Cup of Wisdom (ONLINE)

By SophieAnn on Sun, 31 Jan, 2021 - 09:11

An exciting online opportunity for young women, aged 18 to 30.

Friday 30 April 30 to Sunday 2 May.

The ancient Indian cremation ground is a symbol for any crucial situation where we meet impermanence, death, aloneness and fear. It is also a symbol of transformation, a place where death meets life and life meets death. A place where great yogis and dakinis gather at night in darkenss and secrecy, meditating, dancing, embracing and drinking from the skull cup of wisdom. A place of liberated...

“…while still young, a black-haired young person endowed with the blessings of youth, in the prime of life, I shaved off my hair and beard, put on the yellow robe, and went forth from the home life into homelessness.” - Majjhima Nikaya, 36

2019 Young Women’s Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 20 Aug, 2019 - 15:25

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the very early days of our Movement when Bhante was on fire about creating the New Society through practicing intensely together in the 3Cs (Communities, Centres and Co-operative Right Livelihood Businesses)? These days they are fewer opportunities for young people to be exposed to all 3 of the ‘C’s at once, which is why, five years ago, Adhisthana set up the Young People’s Dharma Life Course.

Here Taravandana, the coordinator of the...

5 Years of the Buddhist Centre Online: #11 Young Buddhist Project

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 23 Nov, 2018 - 16:39

“For me, just being with other young people… actually this is really important… there’s an energy, there’s a natural friendship, there’s a speaking the Dharma in our own language, in our own time, with our own metaphors, about the life decisions we are currently trying to make” - Singhamati, 2015.
 
In 2008 the European Chairs’ Assembly Development Team - which supports Triratna-wide initiatives around the world - ran a weekend retreat exploring how to inspire...
