A number of Mitras have gotten in touch to ask where they can get easy access to resources around controversy arising from Triratna’s past, including responses to allegations of sexual misconduct and other issues that are still being discussed at Centres and online. Here’s a survey of all relevant public information and spaces on this site. We also encourage everyone to use the search facility too - it works well!
