What is the Order?

Friday, 17 February 2023 to Friday, 24 February 2023

The Triratna Buddhist Order is a spiritual community with a particular set of principles and practices. On this retreat we will explore what these are, and what makes them distinct within the context of Buddhist tradition.

As Bhante once said of the Order, ‘there is a touch of something that cannot be buttoned down, something that cannot in the end be defined’.
Therefore, we'll also be seeking to tune in to this mysterious, indefinable spirit that gives the Order its life and energy.
