Thank you: a message from Sangharakshita

Bhante writes:
“I would like to express my thanks to the one thousand and more donors who contributed to my 90th birthday gift of £135,000 [€184,300/ US$210,300/ INR12,981,000].

This gift will go towards the publication of my Complete Works, as well as towards the translation of some of those works into other languages.

Both projects are very dear to my heart, and it gives me great satisfaction to think that, thanks to the...

At the end of last weekend’s ‘Conscious Surrender to the Beautiful’ weekend to celebrate Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday, Amalavajra was able to present Bhante with the money to fund his Complete Works!

Sangharakshita's Complete Works Appeal Celebration and Book Launch

By Candradasa on Sun, 23 Aug, 2015 - 00:06

At the start of this recording Parami refers to the assembled Order taking part in a Mahayana Sutra. Never was a comment more prescient as the thunder rolls in, the skies pour forth torrents of rain and the shrine marquee is played on like a great drum! Afterwards, rainbows - a fitting way to greet Sangharakshita who joins the throng to celebrate the success of an appeal to fund his Complete Works and to hear Kalyanaprabha...

Birthday collection reaches £80,000

By Munisha on Fri, 14 Aug, 2015 - 09:01

Congratulations! Today the worldwide collection for Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday passed the £80,000 mark, with 402 online donations from individuals and groups within Triratna. Help us reach our target: £100,000.

To give you more detail: the money will fund a 5-7-year project to publish Bhante’s Complete Works, including much material out of print or never published before, and in paper and digital, searchable, formats.

The editors, Kalyanaprabha and Vidyadevi, are already working on the early stages of the project, dividing his work into “baskets”....

Collect. Contribute. Celebrate!

There are just under three weeks until Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday on Tuesday 26th August, on which we’d like to give him the money for the one thing he really wants – the publication of his Complete Works, online and on paper, for everyone, for ever. We just need another £34,000; not much between the thousands of people in Triratna worldwide! Please give whatever you can and invite your study groups, GFR groups and chapters to join in.

A lovely video from the Sangharakshita Library at Adhisthana in Herefordshire, England, where Kalyanaprabha and Vidyadevi - the editors of Sangharakshita’s Complete Works - speak about the project and their own heart connection to this great gathering of Buddhist Dharma to mark Urgyen Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday.

Help make the Complete Works happen!

Sangharakshita@90 Appeal - Halfway There!

Sangharakshita@90 Appeal - Halfway There!

By Amalavajra on Mon, 20 Jul, 2015 - 16:06

All of Sangharakshita’s words preserved for everyone, forever.

I am fully immersed at the moment in the £100k campaign to publish Sangharakshita’s Collected Works, as his 90th birthday present. I don’t think that I have ever felt so emotionally engaged to an appeal in my 16 year fundraising ‘career’. It is very present in most of my morning meditations! I personally guaranteed to Bhante that I would raise this money, and I have also gradually come...

Sangharakshita’s 90th’s birthday wish is that his legacy of written Dharma be secure and continue to reach people all over the world. 

But half his writings are out of print and unavailable, search through his entire oeuvre is impossible (even digitally), and most are only available in English.

Our gift will be to publish Bhante’s collected works for the first time, including unpublished or ‘lost’ material, new prefaces and endnotes and a comprehensive index for easy exploration – all verified by Bhante...
