Here is a recently re-discovered little lost delight - Sangharakshita and Subhuti launching each other's books and clearly enjoying themselves. Sangharakshita's in fine humour - and it's great to hear him read and quote from the bible! Is that a twinkle in his voice?
Talk given at FWBO Day celebrations in 2001.
|1.||Sangharakshita - Celebrating the founding of the FWBO in 1967; looking back to 1985 - Subhuti's book 'The Buddhist Vision'; launching a new edition (4:24)|

|3.||Subhuti - Sangharakshita's translation of 'The Dhammapada'; being a translator; all you need to know for Enlightenment (2:49)|
