By lokabandhu on Sat, 24 Nov, 2012 - 07:05Vidyaruchi writes with his regular roundup of Sangharakshita’s news for the past month, saying - “At the end of October, I returned to Bhante’s service after a six-week break, during which time Singhamanas, who will succeed me permanently in March, stepped into the secretarial saddle.

By lokabandhu on Sat, 2 Jun, 2012 - 10:33‘Imagining the Buddha’ was probably chosen as the theme of the 2012 Triratna International Retreat thanks to the influence of a paper entitled ‘Re-Imagining The Buddha’ jointly published by Sangharakshita and Subhuti some 18 months ago. Since then it’s become a theme widely studied and debated throughout Triratna. Sangharakshita introduces it like this:

Other than visitors, Bhante’s main focus at present is doing a final edit of...
