Triratna Young Buddhists: Who are they and what matters to them?

By Munisha on Mon, 21 Jul, 2014 - 22:41In 2008 the Development team, concerned at the lack of young people entering our community, ran a weekend exploring how to inspire more young people in the Dharma.

This spring Singhamati began work as...

Who are the Young Facilitators?

By Munisha on Sat, 10 May, 2014 - 00:08On the first weekend in April this year Adhisthana welcomed a gathering of 35 “Young Facilitators”.

The Young Facilitators are young Mitras and Order members engaged with inspiring young people to meet and practise the Dharma through running activities and groups for young people at their local centres. They gather together every year to share ideas, inspire each other and build friendships which, they hope, are the basis of the next generation of the Triratna Buddhist Community.

There are still places left on this retreat where we will look at the key teachings of both Sangharakshita and Dr Ambedkar as important Buddhists who have significant things to say about bringing Buddhism to the modern world. Both of them chose Buddhism as the most relevant and helpful religion for the modern age. As Dr Ambedkar says ‘to spread Buddhism is to serve mankind.’
