The Triratna Buddhist Order has been defined by its founder, Urgyen Sangharakshita, as a ‘free association of individuals’. All Triratna Buddhist Centres aim to support the awakening of the individual, in an atmosphere of kindness, safety, and positive spiritual stimulation.
We have developed a number of policies to clarify how we apply these principles to the running of our Buddhist Centre.
The Buddhist Centre’s Safeguarding Officers are Dharmashalin, Khemadana and Maitrisara.
 The individual can described as someone who is aware and conscious, who is emotionally positive, generous, and able to cooperate with others, who is responsible, who is aware of their needs and the needs of others, and who is prepared and willing to act in accordance with that awareness [see Sangharakshita: A New Voice in the Buddhist Tradition p.119].
