Sangharakshita's funeral

Posted by Bodhananda7@gma... to Sangharakshita Memorial Space on Tue, 20 Nov, 2018 - 14:49

Dear Order members and Sangha

I thought I’d like to share a compilation of some photos I took on the day of Bhante’s funeral. They are in the form of a short slide show with some music. 

I do hope you find this useful

with all warm wishes

I feel honoured and so very grateful to have been able to serve Bhante as secretary in the last few years of his life. Clear and bright was his mind right up until his death, full of warmth and kindness for those that came into his sphere. 

Though we were generations apart he always took interest in what interested me and our work together was so very smooth and straightforward, which is impressive given Bhante’s poor eyesight and my general lack of secretarial...
