To round off our ‘Triratna anniversaries’ week, here is the appropriately definitive complete set of seven papers by Subhuti and Sangharakshita, documenting their conversations over the past few years about the whole basis of our approach to the Dharma within the Triratna Buddhist Community.
In Subhuti’s words, each attempts to follow through the implications of Sangharakshita’s statement, in the first paper, What is the Western Buddhist Order?, that the Triratna Buddhist Order is the community of his disciples and disciples of his disciples, practising according to his ‘particular presentation of the Dharma’.
Download a copy of the eBook directly. You can also buy a printed edition for only £6/$9.50.
