Letter to the Editor in Response to Observer Article of 16th February

By ratnadharini on Mon, 24 Feb, 2020 - 16:46

On 16th February the Observer newspaper published an article referring to the Triratna Buddhist Community. The following letter to the editor was submitted in response and was published by the newspaper on Sunday 23rd February.

Triratna Buddhists respond to Observer front page

A comment from the Triratna Buddhist Community regarding the Observer article of 16th February 2020

By ratnadharini on Sun, 16 Feb, 2020 - 22:31

The Triratna Buddhist Order is committed to acting in accordance with Buddhist ethical guidelines, including those on avoiding sexual misconduct.

We take the reports of our founder Sangharakshita’s sexual relations extremely seriously and have undertaken a great deal of investigation into what took place. We have been transparent about the findings, outlined in detail on our website: Triratna Controversy FAQ

Sangharakshita published his own apology in 2016. Although the police confirmed in...

Announcing our new books for 2020

By Helen - Windhor... on Thu, 5 Dec, 2019 - 16:39

We’re thrilled to announce the first six of the new books we’ll be publishing in 2020. Three of them are now available for sponsorship.
Why sponsor a book?
Publishing in the 21st century is all about adapting to challenging conditions, with lower profits from online sales and increased competition from digital formats. At Windhorse Publications we are meeting this challenge, but we increasingly need start-up funding for a book’s production and marketing. You can help us by choosing to sponsor...

Dharmapriya was delighted when The Complete Works was released, but he hesitated about subscribing;...
