Becoming a Mitra
‘Mitra’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘friend’. A Mitra is someone who has been practising at their local Triratna Buddhist Centre for a while and wants to express his or her commitment to the sangha (community).
A mitra asserts three things:
- I think of myself as a Buddhist.
- I am trying to practice the five precepts.
- I feel that the Triratna Buddhist Community is the main context in which I want to deepen my practice..
