Here are some download versions of Subhuti’s new paper for specific devices, to go with the online reading version.

How does an international spiritual community, crossing cultures and language barriers, ensure a coherent, consistent set of practices is in place? What is it to experiment with new approaches? How does a community face both the death of its founder and its own future in a healthy way?

Subhuti’s new paper (written as reference material for a discussion group) lays out some key principles in considering such questions within the Triratna Buddhist Community, and suggests some procedures for ensuring the original spirit of our particular approach is respected even as inevitable changes and innovations are explored over time.

Read the Seven Papers by Subhuti with Sangharakshita that form the backdrop to this new piece.
