From a Mitra training for Ordination in Australia.
“This Buddha found its way to me through an act of generosity and intuition. As a practicing Buddhist in an isolated context, I was hugely grateful to be given this little Buddha, who represents the whole of the Triratna sangha to me. When I see this Buddha I feel connected to everyone within Triratna, and all Buddhists around the world who are practicing deeply. I will always remember how this Buddha found its way to me, while I was on retreat, and how through receiving it I felt loved, accepted, acknowledged and seen.”

Isolation comes in many forms and veiled. But when your connection and feeling was so broad, it must have been such a beautifully genuine and deep experience. You so inspire others to realise and trust this Maitripala. Sending much metta.
