Recorded at the 2018 Triratna Buddhist Order International Convention at Bodhgaya, Bihar, here ‘s the great and renowned Indian classical violinist Surmani Prabhakar Dhakade, playing a full program of music for a very appreciative audience.
A beautiful, consistently very fine set of performances from members of the Triratna Buddhist Order to mark the 90th birthday of their teacher Urgyen Sangharakshita. The commitment and playing exemplifies the importance of the Arts in spiritual life, and in Triratna’s emphasis on this as part of a contemporary Buddhist path. Exquisite moments from the ‘Conscious Surrender to the Beautiful Weekend’.

Poetry of Sangharakshita set to music and sung by Joe Richardson. Secret Wings and Pilgrim have tunes by Dh Sumana whose playing inspired me to start this, Winter in the Hills has a traditional Irish tune.
One of the best features of the Buddhafield Festival is its music scene. Day and (especially!) night you can hear a wonderfully eclectic range of live performances, with plenty of spontaneous jams and happenings around the fringes too.
