In his personal statement issued on December 30th 2016 Sangharakshita said, among other things: 

  1. that the FWBO/Triratna sometimes bore the marks not of the Dharma but of his own particular personality;
  2. that his personality was a complex one.


In a new piece of writing, ‘A Complex Personality: A Note’, he explores what he had in mind when he wrote this. He highlights those marks of his personality which have had a positive impact on Triratna as it is today, whilst also acknowledging that personal experience has shown him it is better to keep one’s sexual relations and one’s spiritual friendships separate. This was posted on Sangharakshita’s personal website a couple of days ago. You will find this piece under ’New Writings’

We think what Sangharakshita has written here is helpful in clarifying what he meant when he said that Triratna sometimes bore the marks… of his own particular personality, and want to draw his ‘Note’ to the attention of followers of our blog.
