Padmavajra introduces our new name - Triratna

The last night of the FWBO/Triratna International Retreat saw a special puja to mark the changing of the name from ‘Friends of the Western Buddhist Order’ to ‘Triratna Buddhist Community’. Thanks once again to the great work of ClearVision and VideoSangha, we’re delighted to be able to bring you this video from Padmavajra in which he introduces the new name - and much more... Along the way he explains how the Movement came to have two names - being known as ‘Trailokya Bauddha Mahasangha Sahayaka Gana’, or TBMSG, in India. He concludes with a moving description of the Thousand-Armed Avalokitesvara as the symbol for the Order and its work in the world.

Essential viewing for anyone interested in Triratna!

And thanks once again to ClearVision and VideoSangha for making this possible.
