When your local sangha is online (One World, One Sangha)

From FutureDharma on Thu, 21 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

In yesterday’s post we shared Alex’s experience of being able to reach out online, along with his sangha in Brazil, and practice with our international Sangha. 

Zoe lives in Singapore, and unlike Alex, doesn’t have a local sangha. In fact Zoe is the only practising member of Triratna in Singapore. Her nearest sanghas are in Australia and India! Despite this Zoe is a Mitra and is training for Ordination.  

We all know the importance of having a local sangha where we can study and practice and share...

Alex lives in Sao Paulo Brazil. He loves being part his sangha and helps Manjupriya, the only Order member in Brazil, run their activities. Theirs is the only Triratna sangha in Brazil. In fact their nearest neighbours are our Sangha in Merida, Venezuela - 2,700 miles away!  

Being able to take part in International Sangha Day: A Festival of Light was an unexpected and precious opportunity for Alex and his sangha. It’s not possible for him to travel from Brazil to go on...

A Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times (One World, One Sangha)

From FutureDharma on Tue, 19 Oct, 2021 - 05:00

When the pandemic hit in spring 2020 many of us went into immediate lockdowns. As our local Buddhist Centres were forced to close their doors many worked with tremendous resource and ingenuity to move their sanghas online. It really was incredible to see.

The Buddhist Centre Online team responded with a gift to our Sangha in the form of the Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times. This almost magical resource of podcasts, talks, retreats, courses, and live meditation sessions...

This Guru Yoga involves the transformation of ourselves into Vajrayogini - the archetypal devotee-disciple and then imagining our...

An Opportunity to work for the International Council

From Triratna International Council on Fri, 24 Sep, 2021 - 12:34

We’re looking for an order member to work part-time supporting the growth, depth and harmony of our community as the Assistant to the International Council.

The International Council exists to facilitate communication and collaboration between the College, the Order and Movement. As Triratna has grown, its role has become more important in unifying our spiritual community and spreading the Dharma across the world. 

The international nature of the International Council, and the online working environment, means the post is open to order members based anywhere but...
