Sangharakshita's diary

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 5 Feb, 2018 - 12:55

Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes from AdhisthanaUK:

Rainbows in the Sky - a new piece of writing by Sangharakshita

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 2 Feb, 2018 - 11:32

In this piece completed on 22 January 2018, Sangharakshita recalls rainbows from his childhood days through to his Going Forth in 1947 and most recently as appeared over Adhisthana on his ninetieth birthday.

5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online: #1 New Online Spaces and Physical Places

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 29 Jan, 2018 - 17:56

The second weekend of September this year saw the opening of the well-established Southampton sangha (UK)’s first centre, in a disused pub, complete with intriguingly re-designed pub sign.
