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.”
