“…while still young, a black-haired young person endowed with the blessings of youth, in the prime of life, I shaved off my hair and beard, put on the yellow robe, and went forth from the home life into homelessness.” - Majjhima Nikaya, 36

2019 Young Women’s Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana

2019 Young Women’s Dharma Life Course at Adhisthana

From Triratna News on Tue, 20 Aug, 2019 - 15:25

Have you ever wondered what it was like in the very early days of our Movement when Bhante was on fire about creating the New Society through practicing intensely together in the 3Cs (Communities, Centres and Co-operative Right Livelihood Businesses)? These days they are fewer opportunities for young people to be exposed to all 3 of the ‘C’s at once, which is why, five years ago, Adhisthana set up the Young People’s Dharma Life Course.

Here Taravandana, the coordinator of the...

5 Years of the Buddhist Centre Online: #11 Young Buddhist Project

From Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 23 Nov, 2018 - 16:39

“For me, just being with other young people… actually this is really important… there’s an energy, there’s a natural friendship, there’s a speaking the Dharma in our own language, in our own time, with our own metaphors, about the life decisions we are currently trying to make” - Singhamati, 2015.
 
In 2008 the European Chairs’ Assembly Development Team - which supports Triratna-wide initiatives around the world - ran a weekend retreat exploring how to inspire...

The first knock

Mon, 30 Jul, 2018 - 15:31

I was already late. And it was hot. Very hot. Indian hot. The adrenaline had taken me so far but now my legs were palpably wobbling as I approached the last bend before my destination. The hasty bowl of muesli rumbled restlesslessly in my stomach, rising and falling as the urge to vomit repeatedly came and subsided… Hold it together man… 

I’ve been here before - exams, big talks, lesson observations when I was a trainee teacher - and deep down I know...

A doorstep into the unknown...

Sooo… I’ve just started a six-week fundraising appeal in London with these wonderful people (Mike, Declan, Chris, Ramesh Babar, Vajragupta, and Kusaladevi Spence)! We’re going to be raising money for an amazing charity called Karuna which helps to transform the lives of individuals and communities affected by the tyrannical caste system in India and Nepal. 

We’ve all now arrived and are settling into community we’ll be living in together. For most of us, this is the first time we’ve done anything like this...
