Introducing a biography of Sangharakshita

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 16 Nov, 2022 - 12:45

We’re delighted to introduce a biography of Sangharakshita, due for publication in February. It’s Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man by Nagabodhi, and we’d like to invite you to consider sponsoring it.

It’s now four years since Sangharakshita’s death. Unlike generations before, people new to the Triratna Buddhist Community or interested in the spread of Buddhism in India and internationally can no longer meet and encounter him directly. So Windhorse Publications commissioned this book. We asked Nagabodhi to write something that...

Triratna reaches Trinidad!

From FutureDharma on Tue, 15 Nov, 2022 - 14:15

Hugh Skinner, from Trinidad, is a permaculturist in his 90s and lives in a hermitage in the Trinidadian countryside. Hugh came across Subhuti’s Windhorse book, Buddhism for Today, and was fascinated by the idea of a new society. This inspired him to reach out to Subhuti and the two of them started speaking by phone. Subhuti also put Hugh in touch with an Order Member from India, Kumarjeev. Save for one group, there are currently no Buddhist activities in Trinidad,...

Fifty Years, Fifty Voices: Samasuri (Highlights)

From Fifty Years, Fifty Voices on Wed, 24 Aug, 2022 - 15:48

It’s the wounded healer myth. I guess part of me wanting to be Doctor is my psyche trying to sort all that suffering out… Helping others like I’ve been helped or am being helped.

Samasuri’s Annals:

In 1968 I was not born yet!

In 1978 I was 4 years old, so probably at a play group and living in South Devon with my parents.

In 1988 I was 14 years old. Living with parents and younger brother in South Devon still. At private girls’ school in Exeter.

In 1998...

What's your relation to Sangharakshita?

Sat, 3 Sep, 2022 - 14:51

To help the Urgyen Sangharakshita Trust in its next phase of work, we launched a survey at the recent UK and Ireland Order Convention exploring people’s responses to Sangharakshita. We heard from over 100 order members, who expressed a wide range of views on Sangharakshita and his legacy.

But we want to hear from you too - how do you feel about Sangharakshita? How are we doing at our mission to connect people with his legacy?

Whatever your response to Sangharakshita, we’d really appreciate you taking just...
