What is The Order?

Friday, 5 June 2020 to Friday, 12 June 2020

Going for Refuge to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha needs a specific spiritual community for it to be fully expressed: it needs, in other words, an Order. The Triratna Buddhist Order transcends the distinction between monk and lay and places the spiritual and existential act of Going for Refuge at its very heart. Initiation and acceptance of the four great ordination vows – central aspects of the ordination ceremony – are the main study focus for this retreat.

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
