Introducing a biography of Sangharakshita

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 16 Nov, 2022 - 12:45

We’re delighted to introduce a biography of Sangharakshita, due for publication in February. It’s Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man by Nagabodhi, and we’d like to invite you to consider sponsoring it.

It’s now four years since Sangharakshita’s death. Unlike generations before, people new to the Triratna Buddhist Community or interested in the spread of Buddhism in India and internationally can no longer meet and encounter him directly.

Triratna Writers Convention 2015 - Satyadaka on Sangharakshita's library, Richard Holmes and Samuel Johnson

By Satyalila on Mon, 13 Jul, 2015 - 18:00
