Nagabodhi who is based in England has been the WBC President since 1989, taking an interest in our Centre and offering a perspective to the Chair and Council. On 25 February 2020 we’ll be farewelling Nagabodhi and welcoming Jnanadhara as our new President.
Jnanadhara is originally from Whangarei and first encountered Buddhism through books while in his mid-teens. After completing a diploma in music, he got involved with Triratna in Wellington in 1996. His desire to deepen his involvement led him to the UK. From there he moved to Dublin, Ireland where he now lives. He was ordained in 2003.
This Sangha day retreat will be a great opportunity to spend time with them both and to get to know Jnanadhara, as well as looking at how we might build Sangha, community and spiritual friendship.
