Tools for Living Online: The Spirit of Triratna Buddhism

Sat 12th Jun : 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Saturday, repeating until Sat 19th Jun, 2021

Virtual Event
Lotus

Friendly and practical online weekly introduction to Buddhism and meditation with a different topic each time, usually in themes lasting a few weeks each. We're staying online for the moment but that may change as the world changes. Over six sessions this spring, we’re looking at different aspects of our Triratna Buddhist Community. Sorry, no session on 26th June

Everyone welcome, any Saturday

Whether you are completely new to Buddhism and meditation or want to revisit the core teachings in a friendly group, join us for a warm welcome on a Saturday morning. Come once or as often as you like, no need to be here at the beginning of a series and no need to book. Suryaka, Shakyajata and / or Mahabodhi usually lead the sessions with a team of friends from the Centre.

A Distinctive Approach within the Buddhist Tradition

The Triratna Buddhist Community seeks to get back to what is universal in the Buddhist tradition – practices that can jump centuries and cultures to speak directly to us here and now. Although we base our approach on the core teachings and practices common to all Buddhist schools, Triratna is also a radical and creative response to our present-day Western conditions. Not surprisingly, some things about Triratna are quite distinctive.

• Optional reading: The Triratna Story by Vajragupta
• More about the Triratna Buddhist Community from the Buddhist Centre Online

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as we can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income but not much of our costs: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please make a regular or one-off donation here. The usual rates for these classes are £6 standard rate or £4 concessionary rate
