It is 1950, and Tibetan Buddhism has begun its exodus into India, with Kalimpong as a gateway. In this latest addition to his memoirs, Lingwood, better known as Urgyen Sangharakshita, shares his recollections of those Tibetan gurus and traveling academics who lived in and passed through Kalimpong. Some, like Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, formally impart their wisdom; others teach invaluable lessons by just living their lives.

About Author

Sangharakshita was born Dennis Lingwood in South London, in 1925. Largely self-educated, he developed an interest in the cultures and philosophies of the East early on, and realized that he was a Buddhist at the age of sixteen. The Second World War took him, as a conscript, to India, where he stayed on to become the Buddhist monk Sangharakshita.

After studying for some years under leading teachers Sangharakshita was born Dennis Lingwood in South London, in 1925. Largely self-educated, he developed an interest in the cultures and philosophies of the East early on, and realized that he was a Buddhist at the age of sixteen. The Second World War took him, as a conscript, to India, where he stayed on to become the Buddhist monk Sangharakshita.

After studying for some years under leading teachers from the major Buddhist traditions, he went on to teach and write extensively. He also played a key part in the revival of Buddhism in India, particularly through his work among followers of Dr B.R. Ambedkar.

After twenty years in the East, he returned to England to establish the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order in 1967, and the Western Buddhist Order in 1968 (now known as the Triratna Buddhist Community and the Triratna Buddhist Order respectively). Sangharakshita has always particularly emphasized the decisive significance of commitment in the spiritual life, the paramount value of spiritual friendship and community, the link between religion and art, and the need for a ‘new society' supportive of spiritual aspirations and ideas. In recent years Sangharakshita has been handing on most of his responsibilities to his senior disciples in the Order.

Based at the Adhisthana retreat centre in Herefordshire UK, he is now focusing on personal contact with people. For more, go to www.sangharakshita.org. A collection of 27 volumes will represent the definitive edition of his life's work as a Buddhist writer and teacher.
