In the first section of this talk (4’54”) Bhante speaks of his literary legacy, alongside the other three of Dharma teachings, spiritual practices and institutions (especially the Order).
The occasion was the 2009 launch of ‘The Essential Sangharakshita’. Its editor Vidyadevi has read everything that Bhante has ever written (!) and will co-edit Bhante’s Collected Works with Kalyanaprabha.
This Collected Works will be the first and definitive collection of all of this precious material, including key edited seminars and talks, articles and short stories that have never been published in book form.
I expect people in cultures and times very different to ours will be very grateful indeed that we preserved and collated all of Sangharakshita’s vast writings, and whilst he and his editors are still with us to make the thousand-and-one judgements that the task requires.
You can help the project, as well as celebrate Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday on 26 August, by giving at www.justgiving.com/Bhante90th/.
