The Disappearing Buddha

The Disappearing Buddha

In a wide-ranging talk presented to a large audience at St James' church in Picadilly, London, Sangharakshita presents an inspiring and vivid picture of the Buddha as warrior, hero and teacher able to achieve real communication by meeting others on their own terms. He goes on to emphasise the need for such communication in our own lives.Drawing parallels with Christian doctrine and recounting anecdotes from his past, Sangharakshita explores the Dharma; Enlightenment; the realms of supernormal beings and Buddhist scriptures.

This illuminating collection of previously unpublished talks traces the development of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma in the West from 1965 to 2011.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