Moving Against the Stream
The Birth of a New Buddhist Movement
Sangharakshita

In 1964 Sangharakshita, the seniormost Buddhist monk of British birth, left India for a visit to the UK. After twenty years in the subcontinent – travelling and lecturing, writing, working among the most deprived, and extending and deepening his knowledge of the Dharma – he had been invited by leading British Buddhists to help resolve tensions in the British Buddhist scene. While he was trying to ease conflicts and create harmony, an unexpected turn of events brought Sangharakshita to a crucial decision.

This fourth volume of memoirs, covering the years 1964 to 1967, deals with Sangharakshita’s return to Britain and describes the difficulties he encountered in his attempts to unite English Buddhists. We witness the turning point at which he decided to dedicate his life to working ‘for the good of Buddhism’ in his native land. This culminated in the birth (in a shop basement in central London) of a new Buddhist movement. Thirty-six years later the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order is spreading the Buddha’s message in more than twenty-six countries around the globe.
