The Triratna Dharma Training Course looks set to go ahead. We have enough students to run a course, but there is still space to take more people. This may not be the case for long. Because we will need to plan the accommodation for the students, we may not be able to accept further applications after the end of August.
The course will take place at Madhyamaloka in Birmingham, where students will stay in comfortable dormitory style accommodation, and will run from early to mid January to around the end of June. The course will be for men, preferably young ones, though a serious interest in Dharma training is our main requirement. We aim to offer a thorough grounding in the basics of Triratna Buddhism. It will be taught by some of the most experienced teachers in the Triratna Buddhist Order, and will include a number of retreats with Subhuti. We will concentrate on Sangharakshita’s exposition of the Dharma, as well as looking at the Pali Canon, and other useful developments in Buddhist history.
The course has not been fully costed, but we will aim to keep it below £2000 per person, which would include everything except pocket money. There may be opportunites to earn extra money within the course working with Sanghadeva.
This is a rare opportunity. Circumstances may not allow us to do anything like this for years. Please consider this carefully. If you are interested and want to know more, please contact Vidyaruci – firstname.lastname@example.org
