Beating the Drum: Maha Bodhi Editorials, 1954-64

by Sangharakshita (2019)

Here are 71 editorials written by Sangharakshita for the Maha Bodhi, the Maha Bodhi Society’s monthly journal, during the years 1954 – 64. 'Beating the Drum' contains an introduction giving valuable background, but it is not included in this recording: only the actual editorials.



Sangharakshita lived in India during this period of his life, returning to England in 1964. He went on to found the FWBO, now renamed Triratna, a few years later in London. The editorials bespeak an intensity of vision, a devotion to the Buddha and His Teaching, and a deep-felt concern about people, animals, organisations and nations that together inhabit this planet.



During this 10 year period, Buddhism in India made a quantum leap with the mass conversions to Buddhism carried out in 1956 at Nagpur.
