Object 1: A Dutch tulip vase A particular vase designed for cut flowers recalls the FWBO growing in Continental Europe and also the importance of art and culture in Sangharakshita’s translation of the Dharma.
Object 2: A sandalwood garland A garland made from sandalwood shavings brings back memories of Sangharakshita’s last tour of India…
Object 3: A greenstone from New Zealand A form of jade stone leads Sangharakshita into talking about going to Australia and New Zealand, and his connection with semi-precious stones. Saddhanandi reads his poem, ‘Greenstone’.
