The History of my Going for Refuge - online study week
In his book The History of my Going for Refuge Sangharakshita describes his journey into understanding what is it that makes one a Buddhist and how he came to the conclusion that Going for Refuge is ‘the central and definitive act of the Buddhist life’. We invite you to study with us Sangharakhsita's exploration of what it means to Go for Refuge to the Three Jewels and how his thinking shaped the way we practice in the Order.
You can also get this text as a pdf from Sangharakshita's website and, if you wish, listen to the whole paper (4 hours!) given on the 20th anniversary of the founding of the WBO(TBO) on Free Buddhist Audio
The study week will involve daily study sessions from 10.30- 13.00 and we will also have several evening rituals you can join.

We're offering this retreat without cost for those of you who are currently in financial difficulties but would be very grateful for contributions from those of you who are able as, along with other centres, we are facing a period of extended closure at Tiratanaloka. You can now pay a flexible amount when you book online through our website.
Our normal rate for a 1-week retreat is between £230 and £300 and we'd welcome any contributions you can make. Like other retreat centres Tiratanaloka is dependent on retreat income to meet our running costs.
