‘Fifty Years, Fifty Voices’ is a project cooked up by Lokeshvara and Satyalila last year and supported by the Triratna Trust and Adhisthana Trustees. It’s gathering the ‘voices’ of 50 different Order Members on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Order.

Satyalila writes: “This year we’ll present extracts from these voices and the recordings will be archived in their entirety. In future we hope that many of them can be released as full-length podcasts (with permission).

The guiding image for the project derived from the centrality of Going for Refuge, seen as a central point with a 360 degree circumference. It imagines Order Members approaching this central point from any and every angle, and aims to gather a selection of ‘voices’ from different points in the circumference. 

When a handful of short extracts from each participant is brought into relation with the others, we hope that something of a ‘living hologram’ of the Order (and hence of Dharma practice) can be conjured up. It will be presented in full online.”

i guess you are all aware of Suryaprabha’s excellent film Body and Soul……

which interviewed 20 randomly selected order members (chosen for inclusion in the film by selecting every 92nd member according to a numbered list of nearly 2000 ordinations since the Order’s founding in 1968.)

and is there a reason why this new project is ‘order only’?
