This year Prajnaketu, Triratna’s Young Buddhist Co-ordinator, gave the keynote talk on the Big One on the theme of ’Seek truth, release life’. In it he explores the Buddha’s Noble Quest and how we might follow his example by using the metaphor of leaving the palace so that we can go beyond into a truly ‘religious’ life. Here is Prajnaketu kicking his talk off - the full talk will follow soon!
The 2018 Triratna Young Buddhists’ Retreat - the ‘Big One’ - takes place in Adhisthana this weekend! We’ll be bringing you the best of the event online throughout the weekend: talks, interviews, podcasts, video and pictures.
The Big One remains the key young Buddhist gathering of the year, and is an opportunity for young people across Triratna to come together, meditate, make new friends and have lots of fun!
Prajnaketu talks to Mike and Kusaladevi about their experiences of leading a Karuna appeal, the support they give to participants, and what the ‘ideal fundraiser’ looks like. Also there’s some info on how to apply to do an appeal and what to expect. Check out www.appeals.karuna.org for more!
