You can find them very easily by going to lulu.com and...

Journey to the North West: A Modern Pilgrimage

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 6 Sep, 2018 - 12:00

In late July, a GFR Mitra completed a 5 day ‘modern pilgrimage’, walking over 120 miles from Adhisthana to the Liverpool Buddhist Centre, in central Liverpool.  Along the way, David Tyfield carried four heavy texts from the newly published Complete Works of Sangharakshita, and signed by Bhante himself at Adhisthana the day before setting off.  Inspired by the great fabled pilgrimage of the 7th Century Chinese monk Xuanzang, mythologized in the Monkey Tales of...

In this FBA Dharmabyte, ‘Reflecting on Old Age and Death’, Sangharakshita takes us through a personal ramble through the history of letters and letter writing.

It’s an education and a genuine, poignant pleasure to hear him evoke a vanishing art, pass on...

In the early half of June the Adhisthana resident...
