As most of this site is in Spanish, here is a bit of information for those of you who don't read Spanish.
The Mérida Buddhist Centre is run by the Triratna Buddhist Order (previously known as FWBO). If you would like to know more about our movement, Triratna (or Friends of the Western Buddhist Order / FWBO), go to our home page in England. We set up the centre in Mérida, Venezuela in 1993. This is a non-profit project.
In the Spanish part of these pages there is information about the Buddhist Centre, including the programme of events. There are also translations of Buddhist texts and articles about Buddhism.
Visitors to the centre from overseas are welcome. We may be able to offer accommodation in the men's community for those who have previous experience of the FWBO. If you wish to do this, please write in advance.
Every now and then we organise open retreats which have been popular with travellers to Venezuela.
