The Chairs of Triratna’s centres and other enterprises in Europe are meeting this week at Adhisthana, for the first of the European Chairs’ Assembly’s two annual meetings this year.

After reporting in and a very inspiring day studying the Pure Land Sutras with Ratnaguna, they are hard at work, looking at their attitudes to money, hearing presentations from selected centres (this week it’s Taraloka and Guhyaloka) and playing table tennis.

They’ve also had a presentations on the Young Buddhist project, using news media to promote...

The young Buddhists: Triratna's secret

By Munisha on Thu, 17 Dec, 2015 - 18:55

Presenting Triratna to the European Buddhist Union meeting in Berlin in September, I mentioned Triratna’s recent success in attracting more young people. With most sanghas ageing, people wanted to know our secret.

One answer is that we appointed a Young Buddhist co-ordinator to encourage young Buddhist activities and help other young Buddhists develop the confidence to lead.

Prajnaketu is the new, full-time Young Buddhist Co-ordinator appointed to the Development Team who work for Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly. He...

Clear Vision reports from Triratna’s 8th Young Buddhist retreat in October at Adhisthana, UK. Young Order members, Friends and Mitras explain the importance of these events and rejoice in their friendships. They also say goodbye to Singhamati, stepping down as the European Chairs’ Assembly’s (ECA) part-time Young People’s Co-ordinator.

As she explains, it all began with the first weekend for young people, in 2008, at which some old people were also present, “trying to be young people”. (Yeah, thanks, Singhamati!) What...

Parami’s season of interviews from the South Pacific continues with an in-depth chat to Rijumayi, a young woman who has just joined the Triratna Buddhist Order and is pioneering the Australian branch of the international Young Buddhists movement out of Melbourne.
