By Munisha on Tue, 7 Apr, 2020 - 15:51

Members of Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly (ECA: the Chairs of Triratna centres, retreat centres and other initiatives in Europe) take seriously their responsibility to protect children and adults from harm in the course of Triratna activities.

The ECA employs an overall Safeguarding officer, Munisha, who works with the Safeguarding Adviser, Amaladipa, who is very senior in the criminal justice system in the UK.

Triratna has model Safeguarding policies and ethical guidelines, updated every year.

Drawing on Bhante’s paper on the Ten Pillars from 1984, the Dhammapada and the Mind Turning teachings, Dhammadinna talks about the paradigm shift we make in our ethical practice from power mode to love mode, and the renunciation of power and blame through which we enter into experience of forgiveness and ksanti.

This talk is part of the series The Order as Practice: Shifting Paradigms.

Dharmabyte: The Training of Confession

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 11 Nov, 2019 - 14:00

Confession in the Buddhist tradition is a very positive practise. It’s about opening oneself up to big mind, opening oneself up to wise conduct. 

Dassini looks at the individual nature of practising ethics, the need for metta in response to guilt, how to make a confession effective. From the talk entitled Confession given at Glasgow Buddhist Centre April, 2018.
