Led by Saddhaloka + Saddhanandi
‘If the Bodhisattva Ideal is one of the sublimest spiritual ideals mankind has ever seen, Santideva’s Bodhicaryavatara is one of the sublimest statements of that ideal. It was to the study of this great work that we addressed ourselves on the first FWBO study retreat in 1973…’
On the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Western Buddhist Order, come and mark this significant moment with Saddhaloka and Saddhanandi reviving the first seminar that Bhante led all those years ago and bear witness to the sublime ideal that blazes at the heart of our Order and Community.
All Order Members and Mitras are invited.
‘In order to grasp this jewel of the mind, I offer wish-fulfilling trees, lakes adorned with lotuses, and the endlessly fascinating cry of wild geese; every thing and place of beauty unowned, extending to the boundless limits of space itself.’
[This year we are holding two special gatherings in celebration of 50 years of our Order and Community, for Order Members and Mitras. These weekends will be led by members of the Adhisthana Community revisiting texts on which Sangharakshita led seminars in the early days of Triratna.
The second weekend will be on the Shepherds’s Search for Mind, over the weekend of the 21-23 September, let by Parami + Bodhiketu .]
