Sangharakshita's Diary, March 2014

By lokabandhu on Sat, 5 Apr, 2014 - 05:47Ashvajit writes with his usual summary of Sangharakshita’s diary for the past month, saying - “Misty mornings at Adhisthana this month past have been accompanied by ‘sounds and sweet airs that hurt not’ - by bird song and mild breezes.

Sangharakshita's Diary, November 2013

By lokabandhu on Tue, 26 Nov, 2013 - 06:22Ashvajit, Sangharaskhita’s secretary, writes with his usual ‘round-up’ of his latest news, saying - “There has been a slight improvement in Bhante’s sleep pattern this month, so that he is less likely to feel tired in the afternoon and evening.

Recently we have had some fine autumn days here at Adhisthana and Bhante has been able to get out into the surrounding countryside with Paramartha on a few occasions. Trees are no longer various shades of green,...

Subhuti and Lokamitra in interview

By lokabandhu on Fri, 12 Apr, 2013 - 13:30Just posted on The Buddhist Centre Online is a fascinating interview with Subhuti and Lokamitra, two pivotal figures in the development of Triratna, east and west, over the past 40 years.
