Kalama Sutta

Kalama Sutta

This Kalama Sutta describes The Buddha’s teaching on the benefit of developing an uncorrupted and pure mind.
‘The only way to know whether someone is speaking the truth is to test their advice in your own experience.’ ‘And when you know for yourselves, these things, if undertaken and practised, lead to welfare and happiness, then you should engage in them.’

We Need a New Centre

UPDATE (1 September, 2015): We still have to find a new premises, and the search is ongoing, but we have an extension on the lease for the time being. We expect to be in the Centre until some time next year. Please keep your eyes and ears open, though, for any opportunities that you think may be of interest.

We just got a letter from our landlord telling us we need to vacate our Inverness centre in June. We’ve managed to negotiate a “stay of execution” for a month or two, but we must start the process of looking for somewhere new.

There is no doubt at all that having the Centre has enabled us to reach out and support the local community in a way that we haven’t been able to before. We’ve run meditation classes, mindfulness classes, yoga classes, drop-in sessions, film nights, Buddhist practice days, group meetings, and more.

And we want to carry on. We’re just getting started!

Can you help?

Do you know of any properties to buy or rent in Inverness (or conveniently close by)? Ideally it will have space for groups of up to 30 people. Obviously we’d prefer the usual amenities, but if the place is a bit dilapidated that’s ok – Triratna has a long and happy history of renovating old properties.

If you do know of something could you click here to send us an email.

Thank you, thank you for any help you can give.
