Urgyen Sangharakshita - simply “Bhante” to his friends and to many who practice in the Triratna community world-wide - was a complex, even sometimes complicated, man. Much has been written and said about his contribution to the flourishing of Buddhism in India and the West since the 1960s - and about some of his more controversial sides as a teacher and leader. But we know a lot less about him as a friend.
In this film commissioned to mark the first anniversary of his death, Bhante’s friends talk personally about their relationship with him and what it means to them now he is gone.
