Addressing Ethical Issues in Triratna

By Centre Team on Thu, 24 Sep, 2020 - 11:38

For many years, ethical issues from Triratna’s past have affected the individuals who were involved and the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community as a whole, and a number of people have come forward with accounts of the suffering they experienced within Triratna. Some of these issues involved the sexual behaviour of Sangharakshita, Triratna’s founder.

The Adhisthana Kula arose from a wish to acknowledge openly and respond effectively to these issues. The members of the Kula worked together over the...

Ordinations in a Time of Covid-19: Watch Upcoming Public Ordinations Online

By Sadayasihi on Tue, 22 Sep, 2020 - 15:42

The impact of the coronavirus has been felt on all aspects of our daily lives as well as the life of our sangha - severely curtailing the ability to hold in-person retreats, including ordination retreats. Ordination is a significant point in the lives of Dharma farers in our community: many of whom have been training for ordination for a number of years, in preparation for joining the Triratna Buddhist Order. The public ordination ceremony marks the deepening of their commitment...
