A Wave of Blessings: Triratna Day 2021
Sat 3rd Apr : 5:00 am - 11:00 pm
In April 1967 Bhante Sangharakshita founded what was to become the Triratna Buddhist Community. Over fifty years on, we celebrate this event and all that Bhante has given us, looking forward to how we continue to unfold his legacy in the future. To share the story, Windhorse Publications are offering a free digital copy of Subhuti’s Sangharakshita: A New Voice in the Buddhist Tradition, until 10th April.
Bhante spent his last years at Adhisthana, the Place of Blessings, and we can imagine a wave of blessings spreading out from the burial mound across the world, like the waves from a pebble dropped into a pond.
An International Programme hosted online by Adhisthana
Today’s sessions are a collaboration between Adhisthana and different parts of the world, creating a bridge between the geographical areas that make up Triratna. Everyone is welcome today and all time zones are accommodated – the times shown here are UK time. Come to as many or as few sessions as you like, no need to be there at the start!
