Spreading the Dharma
Sharing our Practice
Connecting our Community Worldwide
Dharmachakra (‘The Wheel of the Dharma’) is the name of the charity behind Triratna’s Free Buddhist Audio service. And at the full moon in July Buddhists around the world will celebrate ‘Dharmachakra Day’, the festival day that marks Buddha’s first teaching…
So this summer, let’s all work together to Turn the Wheel the Dharma!
Listen to ‘The Word of the Buddha’ to learn more about why we celebrate Dharmachakra Day. In this great talk Sangharakshita – founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community – describes the meaning of the Buddha’s words, and also what lies behind those words: the Enlightened Consciousness itself.
Will you help share the teachings of the Buddha with countless people, now and in the future? Your gift – of just a little every week – will make a tremendous difference in the lives of so many people searching for peace and a clear, radical set of compassionate values to live by. See how lives have been changed by Free Buddhist Audio.

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte, “What is ‘Magical Action’?” is a little gem from the Vimalakirti Nirdesha Series: “The Inconceivable Emancipation“. Sangharakshita reminds us that the aim of spiritual life is complete emancipation, but that this aim – and in fact the whole of existence – is inconceivable. From the talk “The Magic of a Mahayana Sutra” given in 1979.
