In Harmony with Friends and Brethren I Accept This Ordination

by Surata (2018)

During the 2018 'What is The Order?' retreat held at Padmaloka for men who are training for ordination, members of the Ordination Team gave talks on each of the 4 acceptance vows, which are recited during one's public ordination ceremony and which essentialise what it means to be a Dharmachari practising within the Triratna Buddhist Order.

In this talk Surata speaks about the second vow, 'in harmony with friends and brethren I accept this ordination'.

The talk by Surata on the first vow - 'with loyalty to my teachers I accept this ordination' - was unfortunately not recorded. However you can listen to the outstanding talk by Padmavajra on the subject given during the 2017 'What is The Order?' retreat: https://www.freebuddhistaudio.com/audio/details?num=LOC3180
