Paying the Land
The Boy, the Monk, the Manav Nagabodhi226
Sangharakshita was a Buddhist monk, a writer, a poet, and the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community - a pioneering worldwide Buddhist movement. He was also an audacious reformer, and for some a deeply controversial figure. In an absorbing narrative, Nagabodhi takes us on a journey through the twists and turns of Sangharakshita's life; the experiences, insights, and reflections that nurtured his approach as a teacher; what it was like to live among his committed followers; and the controversies he left behind.

"Nagabodhi's vivid portrait of his teacher and friend reveals a remarkable life - brilliant, visionary, and controversial." - Hozan Alan Senauke, Abbot, Berkeley Zen Center, Berkeley, California; "The controversial figure of Sangharakshita becomes multi-dimensional as we meet a complex and nuanced person who took advantage of a unique historical moment to realize his vision of a new Buddhist movement." - Nigel Wellings, author of 'Present with Suffering, Being with the Things that Hurt'; "...a perceptive account of Sangharakshita's growing understanding of what it means to live an authentic Buddhist life...." - Vishvapani Blomfield, author of 'Gautama Buddha: The Life and Teachings of the Awakened One'
Nagabodhi joined Sangharakshita's new Buddhist Order in 1974 and has given his life to a range of Triratna projects in the UK and abroad. He worked closely with Sangharakshita, sometimes living in communities with him. In 1982 they travelled on tour in India, an adventure Nagabodhi chronicled in 'Jai Bhim! Dispatches from a Peaceful Revolution'.
