Sangharakshita@90 + Follow, Get Involved!On Thu, 25 June, 2015 - 21:19
Sangharakshita’s 90th’s birthday wish is that his legacy of written Dharma be secure and continue to reach people all over the world.
But half his writings are out of print and unavailable, search through his entire oeuvre is impossible (even digitally), and most are only available in English.
Our gift will be to publish Bhante’s collected works for the first time, including unpublished or ‘lost’ material, new prefaces and endnotes and a comprehensive index for easy exploration – all verified by Bhante and beautifully produced. These will be the definitive texts for us and future generations, in durable hardback, affordable softback and searchable digital. And over time in as many languages as possible.
To make this happen, all of us around the Triratna world need to gather £100,000/€140,000/$155,000 by 26th August.
Go to www.justgiving.com/Bhante90th and leave a personal message which we will copy into Bhante’s birthday card.
Gather pledges within your local groups, such as Mitra study, class teams, Chapters, Going for Refuge groups, centres and communities, and tell Amalavajra your total at Amalavajra [at] triratnadevelopment.org.
- Perform a special puja on 26th August
- Express your appreciation of Bhante’s life and work in a talk or on his Facebook page.
- Download and put up this poster in your local centre
- Share this special TBCO page with your Facebook friends
