make a difference - a conversation

Wed, 29 Apr, 2020 - 11:00

I’m Prajnaketu and I’m in a field (…slightly getting bitten) but this Sunday I’d like to invite you to join me and other young Buddhists from around the world at the Sunday conversation.

This is a great way to connect with other young Buddhists (18-30) from around the world and to enter into deeper discussion on topics that matter to you at the moment.

The format is normally a bit of meditation, then I kick-start a conversation, but the majority of the event takes...

I'll be there for you? a conversation

I'll be there for you? a conversation

Wed, 22 Apr, 2020 - 11:07

What does friendship look like now? I’m Prajnaketu and I’ve been back in the UK for seven weeks, after travelling in India, and apart from my girlfriend (who I live with) in all that time I’ve seen just one of my friends in person. I’m sure this is a familiar situation to many of us.

So how are you finding this? What does it mean for us to say ‘I’ll be there for you’ when ‘there’ means more like ‘over there’...

Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention 29-31 May 2020

Thu, 6 Feb, 2020 - 15:06

Many of us feel like we are living in uncertain and fast-moving times. Separation and polarization seem to be the trend rather than coming-together and unity. The future looks more and more insecure. Yet, the Buddha taught that this has always been the case.

We as young Buddhist practitioners are curious to find out what perspective the Buddha’s teaching has on our world today.

Join us here in Berlin for the Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention, where we come together to create community, practice...

From Triratna News on Tue, 21 Jan, 2020 - 12:04

On Friday 17th January, the Toluca Buddhist Centre in Mexico was formally inaugurated. The Toluca Buddhist Centre arose from the friendship of three friends who wanted to share their practice with each other and with other people.

Fifteen years ago, Sanghadhara, Ruchiramati and Bodhikamala, then 16 years old, living in Toluca, met Buddhism through the Mexico City Buddhist Centre and began practicing together. Toluca is a city located in the middle of the country, 70 km...

First One Month Retreat for Young Women in India

From Triratna News on Tue, 3 Dec, 2019 - 16:22

“I was so determined to come here, I sent my resignation (letter) and I came” - Ashweeni (Nanded)

In 2018, for the first time in India, a five week Dhamma training course for young women took place. It was arranged by members of the Indian women’s ordination team and supported by Padmasuri and Karunamaya. It was a significant retreat as many of the participants have families and children, making it was difficult for them to come away...
