  1 An Opening of the Heart

       1964-71 (47 mins. released 1993)


2,500 years after the Buddha founded the his Order in India, Sangharakshita, an English Buddhist monk, who had been living in India for 20 years, was invited to return home. Britain in 1964 was open to change and a new vision. The story of founding of the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order is told through personal recollections and archive footage.


A wonderful piece of work and an incredible record of the early days. I found it totally absorbing, engaging and very moving.
