Thanks to everyone - the many thousands - who tuned into our live stream on the day of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s funeral and burial. And to those who have been watching and re-watching since. It’s been moving to read the continuing flood of messages and appreciation from around the world. 

On the day we were faced with a number of unexpected (and some expected!) technical difficulties, and the live stream was effectively broken up across different channels, posts and platforms. Here then is a “supercut” of the different parts, reassembling the best versions available from the live stream into a complete record of the broadcast and the day itself.

Our friends at Clear Vision Trust have will soon be producing a high definition, edited film of the day – and you can already watch their selected highlights. Audio extracts from the day will also be available from Free Buddhist Audio, and we’ll gather together in this space more extensive image collections over the next week or so.

It takes a lot of work to produce and distribute coverage of such large and significant events in the life of our community. We’d love you to support our media work so we can continue to bring you the best of Triratna online and extend even further the range of possibilities. You help make international sangha connection possible. Thank you! 🙏🏻

thanks so much for all the dedication and work that went into this.  Hours and hours not just of filming but of editing, cutting and all the other onerous tasks that you all do with such positivity and love

Have just made a small donation to Dharmachakra (buddhistcentreonline) and to Clear Vision.  It’s not much but every little helps

Me too. If everyone who watched the video either live or later made a small donation, Clear Vision and TheBuddhistCentreOnline could be funded properly this year. And if we all made a tiny donation regularly every month, they’d be funded in future years too.

Thank you so much for all your work in making this happen.  I was speaking to Malini hearing how they were up all night at the Auckland  Centre able to participate through the live streaming, and so many others around the world. If lots of us give even a tiny donation it will make a huge difference to this valuable work that helps us feel connected as a community.

Thank you Candradasa and and all who helped to make the livestream possible! Being at our centre in Amsterdam with people of our sangha watching the stream made us feel we were very much part of Bhante funeral, as if we were there! Many many thanks!!

Thank you to all who made this video possible, and of course to all who organised the funeral. I couldn’t get to it, but was able to watch this momentous event nevertheless, today.
