Researching young Buddhists

By Munisha on Mon, 12 May, 2014 - 00:20As we reported a few days ago, Singhamati is the new (and first!) Young Persons’ Co-ordinator appointed by Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly.

In February, even before she started the job, she undertook a piece of research exploring
  • the characteristics of the younger generation
  • their receptivity to religion and
  • a review of the Triratna Young Buddhists’ Project so far.

Listen to Singhamati’s 26-minute talk on her research, given at the Young Facilitators’ meeting in April.

By Munisha on Thu, 8 May, 2014 - 12:48Singhamati recently joined the European Chairs’ Assembly’s Development Team as Young Persons’ Coordinator.

Here, she introduces herself:

“In 2001, aged 21, I stepped into the Buddhist Centre in Norwich, UK. I was having a painful time and hoped that meditation might help. I quickly realised that it did, and at 24 I became a mitra, in Shrewsbury. At 26 I moved to Taraloka Retreat Centre for Women, having asked for ordination.

In 2008 I went to...

Survey: Shaping the Future of Triratna

By Singhamati on Mon, 17 Feb, 2014 - 13:06
Hello,

Are you between 14-35 years old and have you had some contact with the Triratna Buddhist Community either at a centre, group or online?
Would you help us by giving 15 minutes of your time?

A new and exciting fundraising campaign to raise one million pounds is about to be launched to offer life-changing, life-enhancing opportunities to YOU and other young people interested in Buddhism. To help us to prioritise what projects to fund for young people, we would like your help to find out about you and what you think.

In this survey we’ll ask questions about who you are; what is important to you; what your involvement in Buddhism has been; what works and doesn’t work for you; and what sort of projects you would like to get involved in. Please add your voice today and be part of shaping the future of Triratna for young people

Simply visit

Thank you for contributing.
