Triratna 50th Anniversary Celebration
Sunday April 9, 10-3 pm

In April 2017, the Triratna Buddhist Community will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding on April 6th, 1967. All over the world, Triratna Centers and Groups will gather to celebrate and practice together. Join sangha members from Aryaloka, Boston, Portland, Portsmouth and the greater Seacoast region for this celebratory day. The program will feature a shared talk given by Dharmasuri, Sunada and Viriyalila on the Six Emphasis of Triratna and a community-wide metta bhavana. We will have a shared vegetarian potluck lunch, bring an offering to share. We will complete the day with a rousing devotional puja in the afternoon. Everyone is welcome. There will be a children’s program in the morning, and all ages are invited to join us in the shrine room for a rousing family-style puja in the afternoon.

The Triratna steering group for this international celebration is organizing an online component so that we can both develop and hold a sense of our world-wide Triratna Sangha, and also to have a record of who we are and what we are doing at this time. This invitation is for every Triratna Buddhist Centre, Group or Project to share images or videos of their Sangha: they’d like every Buddhist Centre, Project and Group to be represented! Learn more about how to submit your videos here:


We are looking forward to seeing as many as can gather from around the region on April 9th, 10-3 pm, Aryaloka Buddhist Center, Newmarket, NH.
