“Regardless of differences, all Order Members are united by a common commitment to the Three Jewels. Thus it is no longer possible to call [the Triratna Buddhist Order] a lay order, any more than it can be called a monastic order. Perhaps it represents a new kind of development, one more in line with the original spirit of the Dharma.” Sangharakshita, ‘The Nucleus of a New Society’
A retreat that’s particularly suitable for those who have recently requested ordination into the Triratna Buddhist Order, and is also relevant to those with more experience. We’ll be studying ‘The Eight Guidelines’, which offer a map of the principles behind ordination, and give us a glimpse of the profound and mysterious commitment that ordination represents.
There will be a German-speaking group on this retreat, and the retreat will be conducted in English and in German.
This retreat will be held at Adhisthana so please book directly with them here.
