Triratna Earth Sangha - Launch Event (In-person)
Triratna Earth Sangha - Launch Event
In a seminar in 1979 (over 40 years ago!), Sangarakshita, our teacher and founder of the Triratna Buddhist community, said:
I feel quite strongly that this is something that the movement needs to look into and to take even an active part in. I think this is one of the clearest issues in which we can involve ourselves … the general ecological issue.
To that end, a group of Triratna Order members, Mitras and friends worldwide, who are deeply concerned about the climate and ecological crisis we face and see it as part of their practice to do something about it, have formed the Triratna Earth Sangha. And we are creating a Cambridge branch so that we can explore these issues within our own community.
This launch event of Triratna Earth Sangha Cambridge will include talks and discussions, meditation and ritual, and will give us the opportunity to share how we are each handling our response to the climate and ecological emergency.
We want to find out how people would like to be engaged as a Buddhist Sangha. There is no expectation that people should get involved in activism. Rather it is a forum to express our concerns and explore with each other how the Dharma can support us in facing this existential crisis. Please come – we would love to hear your voice.
