The Triratna Buddhist Community (Triratna) was founded in 1967, by Sangharakshita, an Englishman who had spent many years in India as an ordained Buddhist monk and returned to the UK in the mid 60’s. Triratna is an international community of those who aspire to the Buddhist path of mindfulness, and positive emotion, under the leadership of the Triratna Buddhist Order.
Centres in this worldwide movement exist on all the major continents. Dhanakosa is one of many retreat centres in this network. For more information about centres in your area, see find a triratna centre.
In keeping with Buddhist traditions, the Triratna Buddhist Community also pays attention to contemporary ideas, particularly drawn from Western philosophy, psychotherapy, and art. The Triratna Buddhist Community and the Triratna Buddhist Order were originally known as the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, and the Western Buddhist Order. The name change occurred in 2009.
