A Mitra ceremony involves a formal, public declaration of the intention to explore what it is like being a Buddhist and practicing Buddhist ethical precepts, in the context of the Triratna Buddhist community. “Mitra” is a Sanskrit word meaning “friend,” so it is also a ceremonial expression of joining and being welcomed into a community of friends, based on shared spiritual aspirations.
Join David Playfoot, Chris Johnston-Wood and Angel Shrestha to celebrate as they take this important step in their spiritual lives.
