Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungWhat happens when East meets West? A leading Western Buddhist recalls the heady days of the sixties: while many people headed East to find gurus, Sangharakshita was returning to England after twenty years in India. One of the first Westerners to become a Buddhist monk, he became a controversial figure in the Buddhist world and one of the founding fathers of Western Buddhism. Here is a revealing insider's view of Buddhism in the 1960s, the start of a new religious movement, the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, and insights into the thoughts of Sangharakshita--innovator, teacher, and scholar.
