Time change for monthly meditation

By Vajranatha on Fri, 12 Jan, 2018 - 17:01

We are changing the monthly meditations to the last Saturday of every month at 3pm Venezuela time. That is currently 7pm UK time. This coincides with our regulars class at the Mérida Buddhist Centre

The next meditation will be on Sat 27th Jan 2018

We had to make this change because the change from UK summer time meant the meditation at Venezuelan time was at a time that few people could go.

Metta for Merida - reminder!

By mokshini on Mon, 2 Oct, 2017 - 07:01

A little reminder that metta for Merida is still needed in bucket loads - if you haven’t done so already,  do consider following  the Metta for Merida page;  and suggest at your Buddhist Centre or Triratna Group that a metta bhavana meditation is dedicated to the sangha and all the population in Merida. And then do let the sangha in Merida know! Thank you.

This Wednesday is the last Wednesday of the month, so it will be the 3rd session of metta for merida. Here are details of the time etc.

Last month: I had just arrived back in Venezuela & I was in Caracas staying with our only mitra who lives there, Maria Elena. We did a short session of metta together before I travelled back here to Mérida. In Mérida itself there was a session of meditation too &...

Big thank you!

By Vajranatha on Mon, 21 Aug, 2017 - 14:35

Many thanks to everybody who offered support in some way on the Adhisthana Order Weekend. I now have 6 smart phones for the sangha (including 4 iPhones!) Several people gave me money or have offered to support regularly via FutureDharma. Many people offered practical support in other ways and lots and lots of people gave me their best wishes and have promised to join in the metta for merida monthly meditations. I feel really supported by the Order. I’m sorry...

FutureDharma Fund supports ongoing appeal for Venezeula crisis

By Charlotte Lawes on Mon, 7 Aug, 2017 - 17:23

Thanks to the generosity of the European Chairs Assembly, in just a few minutes FutureDharma Fund raised £5000 in pledges to help sangha members in Venezuela, whose country is in crisis. 

Chairs from Triratna Buddhist Centres across Europe and representatives from major Triratna projects had gathered together at Vajrasana for a 10-day meeting. They were joined by several other Chairs from around the world, including Vajranatha. He is the only Order Member in Venezuela and Chair of Merida Buddhist Centre, supporting a sangha including 22 mitras,...

Metta for Merida

By mokshini on Sun, 6 Aug, 2017 - 10:18

Dear friends, Vajranatha, and the Triratna Sangha in Venezuela, needs our help! 

At the recent European chairs meeting Vajrnatha, the only order member in Venezuela, spoke movingly about the situation in Venezuela, and Merida, where he lives. 

In the video he says  ”I really need help…. what’s happening in Venezuela is a humanitarian crisis. I would like Triratna to be able to respond to this crisis.”

Please watch this video and share it with your sangha friends. What can we do to help the situation? Can...

Other things you could do to help people in Venezuela

By Vajranatha on Sat, 5 Aug, 2017 - 13:47

As well as helping to organise groups to send metta to everyone in Venezuela, which I believe can make a real difference, you may feel like helping out in other, more practical ways. Sometimes people ask me if they can send food parcels or medicines, but unfortunately that is not possible, parcels would never make it through customs.

However, there are some things which you might be able to do to help…

  • Offer friendship online to people in the Sangha
  • Do you have an old smart
  • ...
