Triratna Buddhist Community
The Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO)) is an international fellowship of Buddhists, and others who aspire to its path of mindfulness, under the leadership of the Triratna Buddhist Order (formerly the Western Buddhist Order). It was founded by Sangharakshita in the UK in 1967, and describes itself as ""an international network dedicated to communicating Buddhist truths in ways appropriate to the modern world"". In keeping with Buddhist traditions, it also pays attention to contemporary ideas, particularly drawn from Western philosophy, psychotherapy, and art.Worldwide, more than 100 groups are affiliated with the community, including in North America, Australasia and Europe. In the UK, it is one of the largest Buddhist movements, with some 30 urban centres and retreat centres. Its largest following, however, is in India, where it is known as Triratna Bauddha Mahāsaṅgha (TBM) (formerly the Trailokya Bauddha Mahasangha Sahayaka Gana (TBMSG)).The community has been described as ""perhaps the most successful attempt to create an ecumenical international Buddhist organization,"" and ""an important contributor to Buddhism on the world stage."" It has also been criticised, most notably for lacking ""spiritual lineage"" and over claims of sexual exploitation and misogyny during the 1970s and 1980s.""
