Sangharakshita, His Life and Work 4

By Abhayamaitri on Thu, 13 Aug, 2015 - 21:28

Today, from the Croydon series, we have a talk from Vandanajyoti. She entitles her talk ’ a personal taste of freedom’, and shares how studying Bhante’s work has helped her to make sense of her life. And despite not knowing him well, she says that Sangharakshita has changed her life more than anyone else.

Has Sangharakshita, either personally or through his teachings, changed your life?

Convention hits Triratna News

By Munisha on Thu, 6 Aug, 2015 - 13:58

Over on Triratna News, I’ve just reported on our very successful Mainland European Convention. Since that report has been reposted on Facebook too, a lot of people will read about it.

Meanwhile, if you pledged to give money to Bhante’s birthday collection, but haven’t done it yet, here’s a reminder of how to do it. Just go to

https://www.justgiving.com/Bhante90th/

where you can use a credit or debit card to give in Euros if you prefer this to British Pounds. (I know, the exchange rate is terrible.)

Not just pounds... Birthday collection accepts nine currencies

By Munisha on Tue, 4 Aug, 2015 - 11:43

The collection for Bhante’s birthday has reached £64,000 - 64% of the 100,000 needed for the publication of his complete works, for everyone, for ever. The project also includes plans for translations.

But the online donation page accepts nine currencies so if British Pounds aren’t your thing, or the exchange rate is bad, see what other options are available.

We need to raise £1,636 per day for the next 22 days.

Or AUS $3,452 per day
Or US $2,551.

Sangharakshita@90 - In The Library

By akasajoti on Sun, 2 Aug, 2015 - 19:46

A lovely video from the Sangharakshita Library at Adhisthana in Herefordshire, England, where Kalyanaprabha and Vidyadevi - the editors of Sangharakshita’s Complete Works - speak about the project and their own heart connection to this great gathering of Buddhist Dharma to mark Urgyen Sangharakshita’s 90th birthday.

Help make the Complete Works happen!

Mahamati is serving temporarily as Bhante’s secretary. He writes from Adhisthana: “Several of Bhante’s correspondents this month have commented appreciatively and with pleasure on seeing Bhante looking so well in photos taken in Glastonbury in May (one with Paramartha), which have been published widely on the ubiquitous Facebook and now can be found on Bhante’s 90th birthday pages on The Buddhist Centre Online.

Trailer For Sangharakshita@90 - A Life In Objects

By Candradasa on Thu, 30 Jul, 2015 - 20:21

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: a life in pictures

By Munisha on Tue, 28 Jul, 2015 - 11:14

Manchester Buddhist Centre’s exhibition: “Sangharakshita: a life in pictures” opens on 17th August, with pictures from the Clear Vision archive. They write: “To mark this spe­cial occa­sion, a set of framed pho­tos show­ing Sangharakshita’s life in its breadth and full­ness will go on dis­play in the Centre’s recep­tion area. It will then be sited more per­man­ently within the building.”
