The focus for the Triratna Buddhist Community in a particular place is the local Triratna Centre. We have around 65 of them in cities around the world, as well as 15 retreat centres. We run a variety of activities to introduce people to meditation, as well as other courses and classes for those interested in exploring Buddhism. Everyone is free to take on as much or as little as they like. Some people attend the occasional class, while for others the centre becomes one of the main focus points for their life.
Each centre is at the heart of the local sangha, or community of Buddhists. We may choose to live or work together; we may meet at classes, study groups, practice days or retreats run by the centre; or we might just meet up together as friends to practice whenever we can.
Look and see if there is a centre or group near you.
