Sangharakshita and the Shadow of the Past

Posted by Candradasa to Community Highlights on Mon, 27 Feb, 2017 - 19:06

A strong, moving, nuanced set of perspectives from Vishvapani on areas of historical controversy in the FWBO/Triratna, especially those involving our founder, Sangharakshita.

Buddhas in the Walls, Blessings in the Roof

Posted by Carol Robertson to Croydon Buddhist Centre on Mon, 27 Feb, 2017 - 15:43

Running into week 5 with full vigour. It’s hard to keep up with all the activity. Lots of final preparations to the roof surface for the rubber membrane to be fitted this week (weather permitting) There was a fear this week that Storm Doris would stop us in our tracks, but, even Doris couldn’t deter our brilliant builders. When they couldn’t work on the roof, they came inside and continued with the insulation for the inner shrine walls and started...
