This site brings you news of exciting initiatives in the Triratna Buddhist Community and how, by leaving a gift in your will, you can help them to continue. We want to ensure our community remains united and vibrant: keeping the Three Jewels shining worldwide.
Over the past 40 years, Triratna Centres and projects have changed the lives of many people across the world. With your help, we can ensure the future of this work. There is no minimum amount of money (and no minimum value of gift) that can be left in a will.
There are two main ways to make a bequest to Triratna:
- You can leave money, property or other items to specific Triratna projects or Buddhist centres and retreat centres.
- You can leave money, property or other items to the Triratna Development Fund to be distributed according to the changing needs of the Movement.

Below are three short videos made by Clear Vision, in which members of the Triratna Buddhist Community talk about the effects that the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha have had on their lives.
The first part explores how people find the Buddha to be an inspirational figure, and why it is important to keep our Buddhist Centres thriving.
In the second part, members of our community talk about how their practice of the Dharma has deepened over time, and also on their attitudes to death and dying.
In the third and final part, practitioners talk about what they love and appreciate in the Triratna Sangha.
