The object of meditation is to transform oneself, not to have good meditations – Sangharakshita
The Buddha’s reputation is as an exemplar of peace and kindness. The Buddha addressed his teaching towards each person according to their needs and this is what the Triratna Buddhist Community continues to do.
Our main practices include the Mindfulness of Breathing, the Metta Bhavana (loving-kindness) and just sitting. These practices focus on developing calmness, integration, positive emotion, and insight into human potential.
