You may already be familiar with Sangharakshita’s Complete Poems, published in 1994. Even if you already have a copy, this new volume is worth buying, as it contains over one hundred pages of extra material:

  • all the poems Sangharakshita wrote after 1994
  • previously unpublished poems from his early years 
  • six short stories, some of them previously unpublished

Giving the Gift of the Dharma

By Helen - Windhor... on Tue, 10 Sep, 2019 - 16:01

Dharmapriya is a Triratna Order member currently living in Berlin. He’s involved with a variety of projects for the movement and is currently concentrating on organising and editing translations.

Forty years ago, when Dharmapriya was still a mitra, he recognised Sangharakshita as a ‘spiritual genius’ and appreciated that his writing was ‘a treasure to be guarded and used’. Over the years, as Sangharakshita’s works were published, Dharmapriya bought them all.

Dharmapriya was delighted when The Complete Works was released, but he hesitated about subscribing;...

An impromptu 'Indexer's Obituary'

By Satyalila on Sun, 4 Nov, 2018 - 12:59

I’ve been working on the index for Volume 13 of Bhante’s Complete Works for the last few weeks and finished it on Friday morning, having worked late into the night before.  It has felt like its own kind of vigil for Bhante to be doing this.  A great privilege to tend his ‘Dharma body’, or one physical manifestation of it, at least.  I’m not a professional indexer but a (supported) amateur - tho’ as Vidyadevi kindly reminded me, the etymology of...

Sangharakshita's Diary

By Munisha on Wed, 7 Jun, 2017 - 11:24

Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes:

“May has been a month of large changes around the Adhisthana land. Diggers and dumper trucks have been shifting tons of earth around for some of our largest works since opening. Inside the buildings there has also been much work taking place in several areas, not least in the shrine room where the shrine is undergoing a major transformation. Even though the machines have been rumbling away most of the month there...

The first volume to be published:
Dr Ambedkar and the Revival of Buddhism, I

Throughout his life, Sangharakshita, Triratna’s founder and teacher, has poured his energy into bringing the Dharma to men and women from all backgrounds and walks of life, nationalities, castes and classes. His output in terms of the written and spoken word is very great. Last year over 1,000 of us contributed to his 90th birthday present: to fund the publication of his Complete Works. Now the...

Sangharakshita turned 91 on 26 August this year. This greatly respected teacher has left a legacy of wise and clearly written (and spoken) work introducing and going deeper into the Dharma. His books include such classics as The Bodhisattva Ideal, A Guide to the Buddhist Path and The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. His writings go far to clarify the practices for the Buddhist order he founded, the Triratna Order, which is worldwide, and adaptable to very different countries, as seen...

Introducing the Triratna Translations Board

By Munisha on Wed, 20 Apr, 2016 - 15:42

Bhante’s 90th birthday fundraising last year raised well over £100,000 for the publication of his Complete Works, a job which is well under way and to which Bhante himself added more money specifically for translations. (You can too!) Suvannavira writes from Moscow about the work of the newly formed Triratna Translations Board.

“In a world where so many seem to speak English, why bother translating books by Bhante and his disciples into other languages? Imagine coming to...

And to to collectively dedicate their efforts - spiritual and practical. 

We hear about some of what’s involved - from the intricacies of critical diacritics in Pali and Sanskrit terms, to the considerable detective...
