On the first anniversary of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s death Jnanavaca gives a compelling and heartfelt talk about how we might view the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and community: an extraordinary human but also finite and fallible, a visionary genius in the mould of Blake, and translator of the Dharma, who helped bring the Buddhist tradition alive. Jnanavaca also outlines how he himself views Bhante: a Bodhisattva and a Guru - a ‘Teacher’ with a capital ‘T’.

Sharing personal stories of meetings he had with Bhante as well as dreams and his own sense of gratitude and reverence, Jnanavaca concludes that although Bhante is no longer physically with us it is still possible to connect with him, illustrating that how we look at Bhante conditions how we experience him.

This talk was live streamed from Adhisthana on 30th October 2019.
