Looking Ahead a Little Way

Looking Ahead a Little Way

Talking at the 1999 Order Convention Sangharakshita speaks about the Buddhist vision of history as cyclic, and that Buddhism also arises and declines.He enumerates six emphasis of the FWBO/TBMSG, of which the centrality of Going for Refuge is the most important, and says that although the movement is flourishing this is not guaranteed.He states that disharmony within the Order is more damaging than opposition from without, that the Order needs to be in true harmony, and the only means by which this can happen is that sufficient Order Members make their Going for Refuge real.

This illuminating collection of previously unpublished talks traces the development of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma in the West from 1965 to 2011.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