Exeter Triratna Meditation & Buddhism Group is one of many centres and groups of the Triratna Buddhist Community.

Triratna is an international movement aiming to make Buddhist teachings and practices available to the modern world, and our friendly group in Exeter meets weekly to meditate together, discuss the Buddha’s teachings, and support each other in practicing the Dharma in our everyday life.

About Triratna

Triratna Buddhist Order (formerly known as the Western Buddhist Order) is an international network of committed Buddhists founded in 1967 by Sangharakshita, an Englishman who lived and studied with many prominent teachers in the East over the previous 20 years.

The essence of Buddhism is universal and timeless, but the forms through which that essence is expressed are always evolving in new circumstances and cultures. Triratna began as a response to the issues faced by modern ‘western’ society. During its short history, it has developed into one of the largest and most vibrant Buddhist movements, with activities in many cities and rural retreat centres around the world.

All our events are led by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, committed Buddhists dedicated to communicating the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha, and to help create a community of people dedicated to realising the vision of Buddhist teachings together – for the sake of all beings
