In the conversation, Sagaraghosa explains the meaning and significance of her name, and why studying Buddhism is different from studying other subjects.

Welcome back, Pasadanita, and thank you, Caroline!

Wed, 26 Jul, 2023 - 15:00

Last week she who used to be Helen returned to the Windhorse Publications team after three months on leave, most of which she spent on retreat in the remote mountains of eastern Spain. During the retreat she was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order and given a new name, Pasadanita, which means ‘she who is led by confidence and clarity’. We’re sure you’d like to join us in congratulating Pasadanita on her ordination. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!

We’d also like to take this...

Celebrating friendship with discounted books

Wed, 26 Jul, 2023 - 15:00

Our teacher, Sangharakshita, described the order he founded as ‘a network of friendships’, and I’ve come back from the retreat with a renewed sense of gratitude for the many and varied friendships in my life, particularly my friendships with other ‘Dharma farers’. A focus on this type of friendship, what Sangharakshita called ‘spiritual friendship’, is one of the six distinctive emphases that Sangharakshita gave the Triratna Buddhist Community. 

Sangharakshita didn’t emphasise the importance of friendship just because of his own personal inclination....
