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).
Order / Mitra Events,
The Courage to Teach 3
Please join us for this 3rd gathering, out of 6 being offered over the next year. You do not need to have participated in our first gathering to attend.
Open to any and all Order members and mitras who have asked for ordination and are already teaching or interested in starting to teach.
On this third gathering we’ll explore:
• Working creatively with the inevitable fear that can arise when stepping into the teaching space
• Engaging all students, especially those we find “difficult”, with curiosity and love
• Creating a culture of feedback that supports ongoing development and excellence in teaching
