Book Launch and Sangharakshita Birthday Puja Saturday 26th August, 10:30 to 12:45pm With Nagabodhi, Vajragupta and team. Suggested donation: £10 / £8 (conc) All welcome.
Each year we hold a special puja around the birth date of Sangharakshita - the founder of Triratna Buddhist Community, of which Croydon Buddhist Centre is a part.
Of course, many of us never met Sangharakshita. So what was he like? Why is he important to so many of us?
This ritual celebration of his life is a chance - for those that knew him or have been involved in Triratna for a while - to express gratitude for everything we’ve received. And it’s a chance for those who don’t know him to find out a little about his life and influence.
This year is an extra special celebration because we’ll be welcoming Nagabodhi to talk about his book - Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man - published this year. Nagabodhi is a wonderful speaker and storyteller and this is a marvellous opportunity to hear from someone who knew Sangharakshita and worked with him closely over many years. Copies of the book will be on sale and we’re sure Nagabodhi will be happy to sign copies!
