Sangharakshita, founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order, has long dreamed of starting a new library to house his collection of 11,000 books on Buddhism, the Dharma and literature (including extensive reference and poetry collections). Vidyadevi, one of the people who helped make it happen, introduces the new library as it finally opens its doors. Her passion for this project and her love of books is both infectious and challenging as she speaks about a library with its eyes as firmly on the future as on the past. The full talk, Gathering Wisdom While We May – The Opening of the Sangharakshita Library includes a great introduction and conclusion by Vajragupta on the genesis and future of the Sangharakshita Library.
