Padmaloka Online Study Seminars - Starting next week

The Meaning of Conversion in Buddhism
Online Study Seminar

Friday 22nd - Monday 25th May - Now Fully Booked
or Thursday 28th - Sunday 31st May

Ordination into the Triratana Buddhist Order is the witnessing of the profound act of Going for Refuge. Going for Refuge involves a total transformation of our being and our relationship with others.

In order to gain a deeper understanding of what that entails we will be studying an early lecture series of Bhante Sangharakshita - The Meaning of Conversion in Buddhism - which explores four important turning points in this process of total transformation as described in the Buddhist tradition: Going for Refuge, Stream Entry, the Arising of the Bodhicitta, and the Paravrtti or 'turning about in the deepest seat of consciousness'.
