We’ll be exploring the nature of the project we’re undertaking through talks, discussions and study.
‘What we need to do is engage, and try to get others to engage, very deeply with Bhante’s own words, always seeking the mind behind the words, so that we enter into a kind of posthumous dialogue with him.’
