'What is the Order?' - Available Spaces

We’re happy to announce that there are places available for the upcoming ‘What is the Order?’ online retreat here at Padmaloka.


Going for Refuge to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha needs a specific spiritual community for it to be fully expressed: it needs, in other words, an Order.

The Triratna Buddhist Order transcends the distinction between monk and lay and places the spiritual and existential act of Going for Refuge at its very heart.

During this retreat we’ll be exploring the essence of the Triratna Buddhist Order through studying the writing by Sangharakshita, 'What is the Western Buddhist Order?', in The Seven Papers.

These can be downloaded for free here: https://thebuddhistcentre.com/triratna/seven-papers-subhuti-sangharakshi...

This retreat takes place between 1st and 6th of April and is open for men who’ve asked for ordination and order members in the UK and Europe.
