Sharing our Rich History (One World, One Sangha)

For many of us reaching out to our Sangha in India was a natural response to the heightened fear of illness that the pandemic brought. If anything, it’s become clearer than ever before that we really are all connected.

The pandemic also provoked an increased sense of urgency to work with our minds. Over the next few days we’re going to share FutureDharma projects that preserve and promote the very best of Triratna’s rich heritage of Dharma teaching.

The Urgyen Sangharakshita Video Project is collecting video and film footage of Sangharakshita and our movement’s history from all over the world. By preserving video footage from Clear Vision and old Super 8 film, they’re creating an online resource for us all to share.

This work is perhaps particularly important for new people joining our Sangha who will not have the opportunity to meet with Sangharakshita in person. People like Todd, who is a Mitra training for Ordination:

These video clips of Sangharakshita are such a gift, and are especially inspiring for those of us who never had the opportunity to meet Bhante in person, but have developed a relationship with him via his written teachings and audio recordings. Seeing Bhante in India, or with Order members from decades past, gives me a much richer context and insight into his personality, humour, and passion for the Dharma. - Todd

Triratna Picture Library allows us to share in Triratna’s rich history from our homes whether we are in the world. But it wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of FutureDharma supporters.
