Interesting review, Jayarava. I wondered if there was anything the author found to praise in the FWBO, or was this too neutral and academic an article for that sort of thing?

Hi Bodhi,

The chapter was not so much about praise and blame, but about a description of the movement. Dr. Bluck's job, as he saw it (I think), was simply to draw a picture of the movement. Of necessity, given our history, this needed to cover the criticisms of the FWBO from the rest of the Buddhist world. I wonder whether it might be illuminating to invite Dr. to speak to his work in our centres...

Regards
Jayarava
