Trailokya Bauddha Mahasangha Sahayaka Gana is the Indian wing of the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, whose members are gone for refuge to Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha and taken ten precepts of body, speech and mind from Ven.Sangharakshita or his senior disciples. The order is central to this new Buddhist movement and founded in 1979 by Sangharakshita, an English Buddhist who had lived in India for 20 years until 1964. During this time he became well known and appreciated by Dr. Ambedkar. After the latter's death he did what he could to help the new Buddhist movement in India to survive and grow. In 1964 he returned to U.K. to help develop the Buddhist movement there, founding the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order. The TBMSG/FWBO is now an international Buddhist movement with over sixty centers on five continents.
