Preface
Members of the Ethics Kula respond here to some of your questions about the Panel Process and Safeguarding.

A Rainbow of Qualities – celebrating Subhuti by Padmavajra

In the course of the last gathering of public preceptors at Adhisthana in November, Subhuti told us that he had decided to retire from the College of Public Preceptors.

Subhuti has been at the heart of the College from the very beginning. He was the first chairman of the College and has played a leading part in giving the College its form and shape. Subhuti was, in fact,  a preceptor before there was even a...

Order members changing their Order name

Wed, 22 Nov, 2017 - 10:47

There has recently been a lot of discussion following on from an Order member announcing a change of her Order name. Her preceptor and other College members are now in dialogue with her, and we very much hope that any outstanding issues around this particular instance will soon be resolved on a basis of metta and mutual understanding.

However, as an important principle is involved in Order members changing their name we decided that we needed to discuss this whole area at...

Parami, Lokeshvara and Saddhaloka In Conversation

Sat, 18 Mar, 2017 - 15:08

A new podcast from some members of the Adhisthana Kula as they come to the end of a 10-day meeting of the College. 

A great little summary of some of the more general issues discussed, including those arising from historical controversies in Triratna (formerly the FWBO). We get a little taster of other conversations to come - with news of new media, and of prospective reconciliation possibilities within the wider community.

What emerges is a picture of the College at a...
