Update on the Sangharakshita Land Project

Triratna News first reported on the Sangharakshita Land Project back in April. It will see a major move of some of the FWBO’s central institutions - and Sangharakshita himself - away from the Birmingham suburbs to a new and large piece of land and property somewhere in the British countryside.

This will serve as the basis for multitude of new developments - a permanent home for Sangharakshita’s ‘library’ - perhaps better described as a veritable treasury embodying the Triratna Buddhist Order’s spiritual history; a Dharma Training Centre focusing on Bhante’s teachings with study, exploration and practice - primarily though not exclusively aimed at the Order; space for single sex communities, guests, and ‘retired’ Order Members - and of course for whatever may come from the land itself. Sangharakshita has specifically specified that he wants elemental and sublime landscape rather than pastoral - a place that uplifts, inspires and supports meditation, a mythic environment which is, in itself, a place people will want to be and can make their own.

Much has happened since April: the project’s objectives have been clarified; the sale of the Birmingham properties has begun; the property search has taken Vajrasadhu and Mokshapriya across the length and breadth of Britain - and their blog has expanded dramatically, most recently with a call to interested parties to come forwards and begin building the team that will be needed to fully realise the project.
