The Liverpool Buddhist Centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community ( formerly the FWBO). It is an international Buddhist movement which began in the 1960's in England. It was established by an Englishman Sangharakshita who at that time was a Buddhist monk of over 20 years experience. The movement has since spread to many other countries in Europe, the Americas, to India , Australia and New Zealand.
