Sangharakshita - An Appraisal Two Years On

by Saccanama (2020)

Just before what would have been Sangharakshita's 95th birthday, Saccanama explores the legacy of our great teacher.
Looking both at some of the difficulties that have surrounded him as well as some of his great achievements, this is an honest and insightful look at the man who founded the Triratna Buddhist Community.
The talk looks at his sexual activity; the label of 'misogynist'; his character and writings; an example of a teaching we may wish to drop; some of his principle elucidations of the Dharma; teachings he has left for us to unfold more fully; and concludes with a couple of personal stories about meetings with Sangharakshita.
