The Mitra Sangha

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..

If you would like to know more or discuss becoming a mitra please get in touch with Santva (women’s mitra convenor) or Kusala (men’s mitra convenor).
