Product Description


At the age of sixteen Dennis Lingwood discovered that he was - and always had been - a Buddhist. This realization was to act as the motive force behind a life in which Lingwood, now better known as Sangharakshita, has played a major part in the introduction of Buddhism to the West. The Rainbow Road traces Sangharakshita's development from a childhood dominated by illness and books to homeless wandering and ordination as a Buddhist monk. It takes us from the streets of wartime London to the dusty villages, ashrams, and mountain caves of India. Full of fascinating characters and keen insights, The Rainbow Road is as finely observed - and as entertaining - as a first-rate travel book. More than that, it is a remarkable and refreshingly candid record of a journey of spiritual exploration.This Complete Works edition of the first volume of Sangharakshita's memoirs also contains a sequence of later writings in which he reminisces about his early life.
