Bhante talks about his literary legacy

By Amalavajra on Sat, 18 Jul, 2015 - 11:40

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.
