Gleanings in Time

Gleanings in Time

As a tribute to the memory of a dear and esteemed friend and of a brilliant and creative mind, these pages gleaned from his posthumous papers are here presented. They have been written in various periods of the author’s life and hence have been called Gleanings in Time — a title suggested by a phrase in one of the poems.

About Francis Story

Francis Story (also known ans Anagarika Sugatananda,1910-1972) was born in England in 1910 and became acquainted with Buddhist teachings early in life.

For 25 years he lived in Asian countries — India, Burma, and Sri Lanka — where he deeply studied the Buddhist philosophy of life. With that background and endowed with a keen analytical mind, he produced a considerable body of writings, collected and published in three volumes by the Buddhist Publication Society.

You yourselves must strive, the Buddhas only point the way
