Richard Gombrich on his research#

"I regard my two greatest academic achievements as having discovered the approximate date of the Buddha & as having shown that, contrary to traditional opinion, the Buddha regarded the practice of love and compassion as salvific."

Richard Gombrich on the art of timing your talk#

"Once I was booked to speak at a huge meeting on yoga in London. The programme was running very late and the organisers were desperate because the hour at which they had to vacate the hall was approaching. My speech followed that of a white-robed guru. I began: "Ladies and Gentleman, every programme has its high point, and we have just enjoyed that by the grace of Guru X. It must also have its low point, and I know that that has been reached when someone wearing shoes gets up on the platform. I pride myself on being able to keep to time, whatever the requirements. We are running late. I have never before had to speak in minus five minutes, but I can get close by thanking you for inviting me and leaving the platform." I got the biggest applause of the afternoon."
