Twenty Years on the Middle Way

by Sangharakshita

To mark the twentieth anniversary of its founding, Sangharakshita shows how the FWBO has attempted to follow the Buddhist 'Middle Way', learning from the mistakes and discoveries of others, and trying to rise above the sorts of extremes that can dog the lives of individuals and spiritual communities alike.

Talk given in 1987.
