Today, a wonderful talk from Karunamaya, as part of the Croydon series to celebrate Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday. Shraddhavajri and Vidyadharini, two Indian Order Members who recently attended the women’s 5 month Dharma Life course at Adhisthana, also share how Bhante has influenced their life.
Another talk from the Croydon series, this time by Amaraghosha. Among many things he shares his personal experience of hearing Sangharakshita for the first time, and how Sangharakshita has continued to influence his life. And how he walked 4 miles in the snow to meet him in Birmingham!
There are just under three weeks until Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday on Tuesday 26th August, on which we’d like to give him the money for the one thing he really wants – the publication of his Complete Works, online and on paper, for everyone, for ever. We just need another £34,000; not much between the thousands of people in Triratna worldwide! Please give whatever you can and invite your study groups, GFR groups and chapters to join in.
