Women Mitras and Dharmacharinis Day

Sun 26th Jan : 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

£10 – £24

Connecting Hands with Hearts: Living Directly from our Aspiration

A day of collective practice for local women Mitras and Order members in the Triratna Buddhist Community. We’ll explore together how we can live out our aspirations inspired by the Three Jewels, at the start of the new year. The Mitra Convening Kula will lead the day – Dayanandi, Varasakhi, Maitrinandi and Acharashraddha. Three sangha members will share personal reflections and we will finish with devotional practice.

Acharashraddha says:

The thousand-armed Avalokitesvara can be seen as a symbol for the whole Sangha devoted to the Bodhisattva Ideal, with each person as an arm of Avalokitesvara, working toward the Ideal in their own way, sharing a common spiritual vision.

We will develop self metta and turn towards what feeds the heart’s inspiration, with the emphasis on altruistic activity and sharing our strengths and talents. When the light of our practice shines alongside others shining their own light, collectively we shine even more brightly, illuminating this Bodhisattva Path.


The price for this kind of day is now £24 standard rate / £16 concessionary / £10 age 18 - 25. Payment still a problem? As a small unfunded charity, the Centre relies on the generosity of people who come here, but we don't want to turn anyone away. Please contact the Centre Team on 0161 834 9232 or info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk and we'll work something out with you.
