Who Are We?

The North London Buddhist Centre was started up by members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, which was founded by Sangharakshita in 1967. It is part of an international network of the Triratna Buddhist community (formerly the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order / FWBO), with over 80 centres worldwide.

All Triratna charities have a Council. Council members hold both spiritual and legal responsibilities and are the Trustees of the Charity. These are the current members:
