The Twelve Days of FBA (2020) - Day 10: 'Padmasambhava' by Sangharakshita

By Free Buddhist Audio on Mon, 4 Jan, 2021 - 06:00

On Day 10 Parami recommends a scintillating title by Sangharakshita entitled simply Padmasambhava. Originally unreleased (because it was given off-the-cuff after Sangharakshita lost his notes!), this inspired talk sees Triratna’s founder intrigued by the Great Guru’s ability to transform the demons of the world, especially in the West.

After Sangharakshita’s death, the Uddiyana Trustees (the charity which is dedicated to preserving his legacy) renamed the annexe where Sangharakshita spent his final years, Urgyen House. 

Urgyen House was Sangharakshita’s home for the last five-and-a-half years of his life. This building and the Sangharakshita Library (which is located in a different building at Adhisthana) provided not only living quarters for Sangharakshita but a place for his entire collection of books, letters, papers, thangkas and artefacts.

The Uddiyana Trust has now embarked on a project to...

By kusaladevi on Thu, 21 May, 2020 - 15:40

Coming to the end of the ‘Transforming Arrows into Flowers’ Home retreat, it is always useful to dwell on any benefits you have received from the week. Perhaps you would like to make a few changes to your life – such as less time checking your emails; or ‘doing nothing’ for ten minutes each day. You may wish to write these down and keep them by your bed or on your fridge as a reminder. Telling other people can also...
