Extending the Hand of Fellowship

by Sangharakshita

What is the basis for relations between the WBO and the rest of the Buddhist world? Essentially it is only possible to have fellowship of the highest order between individuals who also recognise the centrality of Going For Refuge to the Three Jewels. Sangharakshita explores the implications of this, underlining the fundamental importance of metta ('loving-kindness') in all relations.

Talk given in 1996.
