Sangharakshita's diary

By Munisha on Wed, 15 Jun, 2016 - 23:42

Sthanashraddha is Sangharakshita’s secretary. He writes:

Our late spring is rushing headlong into summer and the great field has had two or three cuts now, in almost as many weeks. Plants and flowers are emerging everywhere and while the cuckoo was heard here last month, now morning walks and tea breaks are accompanied...

Sthanashraddha is Sangharakshita’s secretary.

He writes: “Spring has been bursting forth here at Adhisthana during April. The oaks are coming into their lime green fresh mantles and the copper beech are sprouting, while the ducklings are finally hatching out!

By Rijupatha on Sat, 12 Dec, 2015 - 11:00
