Event Title: Dissolving the Cloud of Suffering: Triratna Day Weekend

Led by Dhammarati + Parami

"There’s a big black cloud hanging over the whole human race, and it needs to be dispelled by the united efforts of us all."
The Endlessly Fascinating Cry, 1973

Over this weekend which marks the anniversary of our Order and Community, we will enter into the myth of the Bodhisattva which sits at the heart of Triratna, through talks, meditation, discussion and ritual.

We will engage the tension between attending to our inner lives and expressing a deep solidarity with other living beings in our relations with the world; thereby approaching the non-duality of Wisdom and Compassion. This is Bodhicitta – symbolised by the wish-fulfilling jewel held to the heart of Avalokitesvara, the archetypal Bodhisattva of compassion.

Come to explore together how to participate in this myth, train in the Bodhisattva path, and unite in our efforts to alleviate the cloud of suffering.

This retreat is for Triratna Mitras and members of the Triratna Buddhist Order only
