About Us

Our History

Clear Vision was founded in the late 1980s by a Triratna Buddhist Order members as an audio-visual project, which sought to record the teachings and lectures of the Venerable Urgyen Sangharakshita, founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community.

We soon also branched out into the educational sector, producing a series of videos, as well as some online interactive materials, to help schools teach Buddhism to a wide range of ages.

Throughout the 1990s and into the new millennium, we also produced a twice yearly Newsreel programme, which we revived in 2013 as the Triratna NewsByte, a regular short video report, to keep members of the worldwide movement informed of what was going on around the Triratna globe.

We are now launching our new project, Living Buddhism Today, a series of internet video blogs of specific Buddhist teachings, delivered by practising Buddhist teachers, available to everyone.

We have also always been the holders of the Triratna image archive, making thousands of photographs and Buddhist images easily available.
