As COVID-19 spreads throughout the world everyone is making changes in their lives. Throughout our Triratna sangha we are socially isolating in order to care for ourselves and others by slowing the spread of the coronavirus. Separation need only be physical however. Our local sanghas are going online and our FutureDharma projects are adapting rapidly.  Here are just two projects, funded by FutureDharma supporters, that are offering us ways to reach out to each other and connect:

The Buddhist Centre Online is providing The Dharma Toolkit for Uncertain Times. You can meditate online with our worldwide sangha, listen to inspiring podcasts, and find out about online sessions run by our centres throughout the world.

Windhorse Publications are offering an inspiring Dharma book each week, free to download as an eBook

Over the coming weeks and months we’ll keep you posted on how FutureDharma projects are responding to these challenging times and bringing quality Dharma teaching and supportive sangha contexts to all who want them. In the meantime, please stay safe, stay connected, and give if you can.

Our Projects

In the next crucial years for Triratna and the world, help create:

One Sangha united by a spirit of Kalyana Mitrata and Sangharakshita’s lineage of practices and teachings.

Creating the Depth and Intensity of Practice needed for the arising of the Bodhicitta.

Life-Transforming Dharma available to people of any age or background, around the world.

By Giving:

“Giving is the fundamental Buddhist virtue.
Before taking up any other practice, one should learn to be generous.”

Sangharakshita
