Indian Pilgrimage February 2018 – From the Bodhi Tree to Triratna

To coincide with the international conventions, the India Dhamma Trust is arranging a special pilgrimage for order members and mitras who wish to gain a living experience of the unity of Triratna.

From the heartlands of Ancient Buddhism, order members and mitras will follow itineraries that attend the order or mitra conventions at Bodh Gaya, and take in the traditional pilgrimage sites of Shravasti, Kusinara, Lumbini, Vaishali and Sarnath, before combining to travel to Nagpur to explore Triratna activities there, and participate in exceptional Buddha Festival held there at the Dikshabhumi ( site of the mass conversions). The pilgrimage will conclude with visits to the Ajanta and Ellora caves, and visits to Triratna activities at Pune and Bhaja.

If you would like to make the most of the opportunity to create links between the ancient pilgrimage sites and the living Dhamma in India, this pilgrimage is the ideal way to do so.

The pilgrimage runs through the whole of February 2018, though has a range of options for joining for different sections, from 11 to 31 days.

Costs range from 14000 INR ( £170 approx) to 97000INR (£1170approx) and are exclusive of return flight to India and convention fee/accommodation .

Organisation of the Pilgrimage in India is undertaken by Bodhi Tours, a Right Livelihood project run by three order members.

Dhamma Revolution Retreat at Adhisthana 17 – 19 November 2017

Dharmacharini Vajratara is writing a new mitra study module introducing Dr Ambedkar to Westerners and exploring his influence on Sangharakshita and Triratna. She is planning to launch it on the Dhamma Revolution Retreat at Adhisthana 17-19 November, with the help of the Indian Public Preceptors. If you are going on Convention or Pilgrimage to India next year, or if you are interested in doing this module, come to that weekend! It’s a great opportunity to hear about Ambedkar and Triratna India from those who are most involved: the Indian Public Preceptors.
