We’re very happy to mark Urgyen Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday by launching a virtual version of the ‘Nine Decades’ exhibition currently running at Adhisthana.

Listen to all nine interviews with Saddhanandi - each exploring a decade of Sangharakshita’s life through the prism of a set of objects chosen to represent the time. In these very personal conversations, Bhante reflects on his long experience of trying to translate the Buddha’s Dharma for the modern world having first come across it in London in the 1940s. 

You can also view a gallery of all the objects chosen for the series, as well as many of the pictures from Sangharakshita’s personal collection that help bring his 90 years to life in the exhibition.
