Sangha Evening: Remembering Sangharakshita

Fri 30th Oct : 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Virtual Event
Offering to Sangharakshita

Centre regulars get together for talks, discussion and friendship at our fortnightly Sangha evening. No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start.

Remembering Sangharakshita

On 30th October it is two years since the death of Urgyen Sangharakshita, the founder of our Order and community. To mark this, Mahasraddha and Taravandana will be leading a special Sangha night on gratitude to Sangharakshita. Mahasraddha says:

In ‘What is the Sangha’, Sangharakshita makes the point that the newly enlightened Buddha was a grateful Buddha. Gratitude is a fundamental emotion or attitude in Buddhist practice; so much flows from it, including inspiration and faith.

Sangharakshita was a towering figure in the Buddhist world. The Triratna Order and community are founded on his teachings and his interpretation of the dharma. Many people involved with Triratna feel some gratitude to Sangharakshita, irrespective of whether they knew him or not. 

During this evening, Ratnaguna, Dayanandi and other speakers who knew Sangharakshita personally will speak about what Sangharakshita and his teachings have given them. It will be an opportunity for all of us to stop, pause and take stock of our spiritual life and reflect on the role Sangharakshita has played in it. 

Who is the event for?

Suitable for anyone who has experience of our two meditation practices, Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana, and is open to Buddhist ritual.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
