Other talks from Triratna Buddhist Order
There are no tracks or transcript for this talk. Help us make them!
An appropriately pithy talk by Ratnaprabha looking at the sometimes controversial aphorisms of Sangharakshita. The history of aphoristic discourse itself is explored, and we get a lovely smattering of examples from Nietschze, Dr. Johnson, and others. Ratnaprabha is always good-humoured, and he's the ideal man to take us through an area of Sangharkshita's own teaching that is always likely to provoke debate and often strong feelings...
N.B. This talk was given to an invited audience of members of the Western Buddhist Order and assumes a degree of familiarity with the order and its history. The word 'Bhante' refers to Urgyen Sangharakshita, the order's founder.
Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Centre, Men's National Order Weekend, February 2006
