In part two of Suvajra’s first talk in a series about Sangharakshita’s eight special contributions to Triratna, he talks about the Twenty-four Nidana Chain and Higher Evolution.

These, he says, are unique to Bhante’s approach.

Suvajra also draws on the Buddha’s teaching and makes the link with Babasaheb’s approach to transcendence from suffering through faith and so on.
