There is a need to make explicit the vision and aims of a Buddhist Centre. Being clear of what your intentions are enables you to review your activities to assess whether they are meeting those aims. It also lets you ensure that those intentions are informing every dimension of what you do.
Our overall aim to to present the Three Jewels of Buddhism as a living reality accessible to people in our society today – but we can be more particular than that.
Over the last year, order members and others involved with the cente have had a number of lively discussions aimed at drawing out those aspects of our centre’s purposes that we consider indispensible and that we wish to highlight and make explicit. From those discussions have emerged the three dimensions to our Threefold Vision presented here.
