Jnanavaca - Seeing Bhante: A Personal Perspective

By Centre Team on Mon, 4 Nov, 2019 - 12:50

On the first anniversary of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s death Jnanavaca gives a compelling and heartfelt talk about how we might view the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and community: an extraordinary human but also finite and fallible, a visionary genius in the mould of Blake, and translator of the Dharma, who helped bring the Buddhist tradition alive. Jnanavaca also outlines how he himself views Bhante: a Bodhisattva and a Guru - a ‘Teacher’ with a capital ‘T’.
