The vajra: cutting through to the truth

The Guardian’s Article on the FWBO


Inevitably it is difficult to present a balanced and fair portrayal of a complex Buddhist movement within the confines of an article and the constraints of journalistic timetables and agendas. Madeleine herself admits that this is near impossible. Hopefully this document will go some way towards helping interested parties gain additional insight into the matters the article raises and come to a fuller and more balanced picture of both the issues and the FWBO itself. The FWBO is a vibrant and effective spiritual movement with much to contribute to spiritual life in the modern world. Naturally we hope the article does not do too much damage to the FWBO’s credibility, and that anyone with concerns which are not satisfactorily addressed in this document will feel free to discuss these matters with us more fully.
