The Vajra Bell is a quarterly newsletter covering events and news at Aryaloka Buddhist Center and other Triratna Buddhist centers in North America. In each issue you'll find insightful articles on Buddhist topics, updates from around the continent, reviews of Buddhist books and other media, poetry and artwork created by sangha members, and a full list of local upcoming events.
What does Vajra Bell mean? Vajra means thunderbolt or diamond, that which cuts through all obstacles to Enlightenment. The vajra is the symbol of a union of opposites, the ultimate expression of wisdom and compassion. A vajra bell rings out far and wide the melody of transcendental reality. As a newsletter, the Vajra Bell is a rich and rewarding read that brings our sangha together in common spiritual practice.
Each issue is available for download in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format or can be viewed online here at The Buddhist Centre Online. To view the full archive online, please visit http://www.aryaloka.org/category/vajrabell/
