Drawing inspiration from Sangharakshita’s rousing (and much-loved) 1979 lecture, we’ll use our computer screens to meditate together, hear short talks, gather in discussion groups and try some online rituals – with plenty of breaks in-between to save our eyes (& our minds!)
If you’re aged 30 or under, then this retreat is for you – it doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to meditation and Buddhism,...
Vom Buddha heißt es, er sei vollkommen furchtlos gewesen. Was bedeutet das für uns?

Ratnavyuha, from Auckland, New Zealand, and Ratnadharini from the UK, discuss themes of Going for Refuge, Sincerity and Effectiveness in the first in a series of informal, personal, conversations between Public Preceptors about the Eight Guidelines for Ordination Training.

A chance to watch Bodhilila’s contribution from the Buddhists Across Traditions’ Black History USA and LGBTQIA+ Month.
Excerpt from the event blurb to get a sense of some of the themes covered:

Triratna communities around the world have been marking Parinirvana Day, which occurs on 15th February each year, commemorating the physical death and final Nirvana of the Buddha Shakyamuni.
