There’s something about coming at it all fresh and trying to see the patterns in it and bring it together in its different ‘baskets’…

Vidyadevi is an editor of ‘The Complete Works of Sangharakshita’ which aims to be the definitive edition of Sangharakshita’s life’s work as a Buddhist writer and teacher.

In this conversation she talks about the various different people who are involved in making this project happen, its significance, what it’s like working on it now that Sangharakshita has died, and her ambition for the Complete Works to be as friendly and as approachable as possible.

From creating a concordance (which allows readers to pursue their interests in certain themes throughout the whole works) to translations to the encouragement received from hearing back from readers of these volumes, Vidyadevi gives us a sense of what it is like being involved in a project of this magnitude.

Conversation recorded in February 2019.
