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”....
In the first section of this talk (4’54”) Bhante speaks of his literary legacy, alongside the other three of Dharma teachings, spiritual practices and institutions (especially the Order).
The occasion was the 2009 launch of ‘The Essential Sangharakshita’. Its editor Vidyadevi has read everything that Bhante has ever written (!) and will co-edit Bhante’s Collected Works with Kalyanaprabha.
This Collected Works will be the first and definitive collection of all of this precious material, including key edited seminars and talks, articles and short stories that have never been published in book form.
