Here is the first chapter of Sangharakshita’s commentary on the ratnaguna-samcayagatha, the text on which this Urban Retreat is based.
Don’t let the long title put you off! What it is all about is exploring how we can live a live with more appreciation, more spaciousness and engagement, a greater eye for beauty, and developing a more non-utilitarian attitude to places and people around us.
The chapter is taken from the following book written by Sangharakshita - if you want to read the whole text and support Buddhist publishing you can buy it from Windhorse Publications:
