An Online Festival Of Light: International Sangha Day, November 28th 2020

Tue, 29 Sep, 2020 - 21:34

What a year… Through dark days that have brought heartache for so many reasons, we’ve come together as a community time and time again. Resilient, reflective, remarkable. And now, as we head into winter in one hemisphere and summer in another, we invite everyone moved by the sangha in 2020 to gather again as one.

We’ll pass the torch around the world once more – starting at dawn in the south Pacific, ending with nightfall in the north – ringing Triratna with...

Sugar Skull Shrines and Sugar Cane Fields: Transformation in Mexico at the Pan-American Convention

Fri, 25 Oct, 2019 - 05:20
