When we become mitras we assert that the Triratna Buddhist Community is the context in which we want to practice the Dharma, at least for the foreseeable future. In the first three sessions of Part 5 of the course we will explore what this means, by looking at how Triratna fits in to the wider context of Buddhist history and Buddhist schools, by looking at the style of practice within Triratna – and why it is what it is – and by looking at some of the distinctive features of Triratna that distinguish it from other Buddhist schools you might come across. The last four sessions of Part 5 focus on ritual and devotional practice. We will look at the purpose of ritual, and we will explore the main devotional practices used in Triratna in some detail. In this first session of Part 5 we will give a brief history of the different schools and styles of Buddhism, to help us to see the Triratna Buddhist Community in its broader context.
Please book early so we can see if we have viable numbers to run a course. If we don’t have that we may decide to cancel the course a few days ahead of it’s starting.
