The Vajra Bell is an online publication featuring articles on the teachings and practices of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community. In each issue you will find insightful articles on Buddhist topics, updates from many of our Triratna Buddhist Centers in North America, reviews of Buddhist books and other media, poetry and artwork created by Sangha members.
So, 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 magazine, 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 at Aryaloka Buddhist Center or here on The Buddhist Centre online.
