Writers Convention 2015 - No. 4, Satyadaka on Sangharakshita's library, Richard Holmes and Samuel Johnson

Episode 212,   Jul 13, 2015, 04:43 PM

After our weekend break, Satyalila is back with the latest installment from the Triratna Writers Conference. It's unusual perhaps for a Buddhist community to place such an emphasis on the Arts as a route to spiritual inquiry - but it's a real pleasure to listen to it happening 'as live'!

This conversation with Satyadaka takes place in the brand new Sangharakshita library and we hear much about one of "Bhante's" literary heroes, Dr. Johnson, as well as the great Romantic biographer Richard Holmes.
