Triratna Day 2013: Celebrating Gratitude with our wider community
Hosted by the Young Buddhists group
Saturday 6th April, Birmingham Buddhist Centre
Sangharakshita has said many people who visit him thank him for starting the Triratna Buddhist Community. He has observed that they nearly always express gratitude for two things: his clear conceptual presentation of the Dharma, and the warmth of the alternative culture provided by the Sangha. This Triratna Day we will be hearing about Sangharakshita’s latest thinking, experiencing and rejoicing in the Sangha, exploring the alternative culture of Triratna and its new youth movement and expressing whatever it is we appreciate about the Triratna Buddhist Community.
All hosted by the Birmingham Young Buddhists group (YOBs) - expect energy and fun!
