Dharmabyte: Reflecting on Core Triratna Features

By Rijupatha on Thu, 10 Sep, 2015 - 11:00

Today’s FBA Dharmabyte, called “Reflecting on Core Triratna Features” is an excerpt from the talk “The Six Distinctive Emphases of the FWBO. It begins with a lovely personal note from Sangharakshita regarding the loss of his eyesight, and his reflections on the beginnings and some of the important features of Triratna (the former FWBO) that those in our community should consider.

Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, 2002.

Trailer For Sangharakshita@90 - A Life In Objects

For the past couple of months, Saddhanandi has been conducting a very personal set of interviews with Bhante, looking back on his long life through the lens, as it were, of a set of objects he has chosen to represent each of his nine decades. They are quite fascinating conversations - I’m halfway through editing them and have already heard a number of surprising new things about Bhante and his early days as a Buddhist!

Sangharakshita’s 90th’s birthday wish is that his legacy of written Dharma be secure and continue to reach people all over the world. 

But half his writings are out of print and unavailable, search through his entire oeuvre is impossible (even digitally), and most are only available in English.

Our gift will be to publish Bhante’s collected works for the first time, including unpublished or ‘lost’ material, new prefaces and endnotes and a comprehensive index for easy exploration – all verified by Bhante...

This excerpt is from a lovely 2001 talk by Sangharakshita that is well worth revisiting often, entitled “The Six Distinctive Emphases of the FWBO.
