Mitra

Portrait of Mitra

"Mitra" is a Sanskrit word which simply means ‘friend’. A Mitra is a person who has deepened their friendship with the Triratna Buddhist Order and have made a ‘provisional’ commitment to practicing the Dharma within our spiritual community. This involves a commitment to Buddhism, to practicing the Buddhist path as taught within our tradition, and to the Triratna Buddhist Community as the main context for their practice.
