Fifteen Points for Old – and New – Order Members

Fifteen Points for Old – and New – Order Members

In this lively talk, given on the 25th anniversary of the Western Buddhist Order, Sangharakshita exhorts all members of the Order to deepen their personal practice of the Dharma and to be even more vigorous in communicating the Dharma to the wider world.Order Members should not think in terms of accepting themselves, should think in terms of renunciation and be more conscious of their responsibilities as citizens. These are just three of the fifteen thought-provoking points which will be of interest not only to the Order Members but to anyone interested in the practice of Buddhism in the modern world.

This illuminating collection of previously unpublished talks traces the development of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma in the West from 1965 to 2011.

Drawing on a wide range of sources, from the Pāli canon and The Tibetan Book of the Dead to Beowulf and William Wordsworth, there are many intriguing perspectives: an exploration of Buddhist psychology, the histories of great teachers like Padmasambhava and Atīśa, reflections on going forth, creativity, the demons around and within us, the role of the will in the spiritual life, and much more. The final talks in the volume, given towards the end of Sangharakshita’s life, are more personal, and they include reflections on dreams, old age and rebirth.
