Podcast - Ratnadharini and Shantigarbha on Restorative Process in Triratna

By Centre Team on Wed, 24 Oct, 2018 - 20:48

Ratnadharini and Shantigarbha give an excellent, practical introduction to using the Restorative Process in order to resolve disharmony within Triratna. Exploring its principles and its methodology, this short talk also provides a helpful overview of why the Restorative approach is considered such a good fit for a Buddhist community.

Recorded in India, spring 2018.

Triratna Safeguarding talk at the German Buddhist Union

By Munisha on Sat, 20 Oct, 2018 - 18:10

I’d like to report briefly on a visit to the German Buddhist Union (DBU) annual meeting in April this year – with apologies for the considerable lateness of this report.

The Diamond Way Sangha, at their wonderful lakeside Europe Centre in Bavaria, were wonderful hosts to around 50 representatives from various Buddhist traditions in Germany, including Triratna’s Vidyagita and Karunada. Their theme being ethics in sanghas, I was invited to address them on the topic...

Hej vänner!

Adhisthana Kula - An Update On Our Work (September 2017)

By ratnadharini on Sat, 23 Sep, 2017 - 13:05

The FWBO/Triratna was formed to alleviate the suffering of the world through practising and sharing the Dharma, the teaching of the Buddha, and that remains at our heart. Over 50 years we have created an Order and Movement that have touched and transformed the lives of thousands of people around the world. The journey has been inspiring and challenging, and not without difficulties. We deeply regret where anyone’s involvement with our Order and Movement has led to suffering and...

A Complex Personality: A Note - a new piece of writing by Sangharakshita

By Mahamati on Tue, 8 Aug, 2017 - 20:21

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,...
