The Triratna Story by Vajragupta
The Triratna Story is a courageous and important book. Written by a serious adherent, and commissioned by the Triratna Community itself, it defies all expectations to tell the brilliant, troubled, and inspiring history of this unique Western Buddhist movement with a thoroughness and honesty that, frankly, would not have been possible had it been written by an outsider. This is a valuable and instructive text for anyone interested in looking beyond theidealism of the Buddhist teachings to what actually happens when Buddhism becomes real in the modern world. Zoketsu Norman Fischer; poet, author and founder of the Everyday Zen Foundation.
