Buddhist Voices - Triratna America 2014

Sep 23, 2014, 11:08 PM

A great conversation with six members of the Triratna Buddhist Order from North America at the end of their bi-annual Convention. Karunadevi, Amala, Suddhayu, Viradhamma, and Rijupatha all join our host Manidha for a round-table discussion of what it means to be part of Triratna on this continent in 2014.

Some thoughtful recollections from the early days in the mid-'80s meet a wonderful sense of optimism and gratitude from the present as we consider conditions for practice in the USA and Canada and our relations to the wider spiritual community beyond our own shores.

Recorded on the sun porch with birds and frogs and crickets at Aryaloka Retreat Center in New Hampshire, September 2014.
