By ECA Safeguarding on Wed, 17 Jun, 2020 - 16:21

On Thursday 21st May 2020 Munisha appeared as a witness at a public inquiry relating to child sexual abuse in England and Wales, speaking about child protection, and Safeguarding more generally in Triratna, from her experience as the Safeguarding officer employed by the European Chairs’ Assembly to support Triratna centres’ Safeguarding officers with policies and advice.

Introducing the Adhisthana Kula

By ratnadharini on Tue, 28 Feb, 2017 - 23:02

The Triratna Buddhist Order now numbers over 2,000 members in around 30 countries, and the associated Community is many times bigger. This presents quite a challenge when a situation arises requiring the sharing of complex information and wide-ranging discussion among all involved – as has recently happened following the broadcast of a BBC local TV programme in the UK.

‘Inside Out’, on 26th September 2016, included a 12-minute report referring to accounts of sexual misconduct in the early...
