Have you ever wondered what it was like in the very early days of our Movement when Bhante was on fire about creating the New Society through practicing intensely together in the 3Cs (Communities, Centres and Co-operative Right Livelihood Businesses)? These days they are fewer opportunities for young people to be exposed to all 3 of the ‘C’s at once, which is why, five years ago, Adhisthana set up the Young People’s Dharma Life Course.
“For me, just being with other young people… actually this is really important… there’s an energy, there’s a natural friendship, there’s a speaking the Dharma in our own language, in our own time, with our own metaphors, about the life decisions we are currently trying to make” - Singhamati, 2015.
Four young women from Adhisthana’s DharmaLife course - which finished yesterday - talk to Amalavajra about how their lives have been changed by Sangharakshita’s life and writings.
Bhante’s 90th birthday present will be the collation, editing and publication (paper and digital) of everything that he has ever written. This is an enormous project that will need five years work and £100,000 (including some translations from English).
Without it, the scattered share of Bhante’s writings that is currently available will simply become harder to come by and explore in full.
