Mon 1st Apr : 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Tonight our Sangha will gather together to welcome new Mitras to our community – it’s a Sanskrit word for friends.
The evening is for Order members, Mitras and Centre regulars who have completed a Buddhism Level 2 / Going Deeper course – please get in touch if you’re not sure. Friends and relatives of the new Mitras will of course be welcomed too. There’s no need to say you’re coming, but please be here in good time for a 7 pm start in the shrine room. You may want to bring the new Mitras cards and maybe small gifts to mark this occasion – our shop can provide!
A Joyful Occasion
At these ceremonies we witness, support and rejoice in the deepening commitment of a number of people from our Centre as they make the important step of becoming Mitras. They will be introduced to us all and we’ll hear some background information on what being a Mitra means. Then, in a simple ceremony, they commit to practising Buddhism within the Triratna Buddhist Community for the foreseeable future.
