A memorial and celebration of Ashvajit’s life will be held at Adhisthana and live-streamed on Wednesday 9th August. This will be followed by a ceremony at a crematorium in Pershore. Everyone is invited to attend either event or both. The day is being organised by a team consisting of Amogharatna, Akasaraja, Mahamati and Yashodeva.

The schedule is as follows:

Arrival at Adhisthana 11.00 – 12.00

Ceremony at Adhisthana 12.00 – 14.00

Informal Lunch 14.00 – 15.00

Crematorium 16.00 – 17.00

It is important that we keep to the time plan, as the times for the crematorium are not flexible, so please make sure you arrive in good time. The journey by car from Adhisthana to the crematorium takes about 45 minutes. In order for us to plan effectively, please let me know if you will be attending. Send a brief email to amogharatna [at] with the following information:

whether you will attend the celebration and lunch at Adhisthana

whether you have special dietary needs

whether you require a lift, or are able to offer a lift to the crematorium from Adhisthana

Because we have a tight time schedule, there will be no ‘open space’ for rejoicings. Instead, selected people will rejoice in Ashvajit during the programme at Adhisthana. There will also be a book in which people can write additional rejoicings. Anyone who can’t attend in person can send contributions to me (preferably as a pdf) to //amogharatna [at]" rel="nofollow">amogharatna [at] I will print them out and include them in the finished book, which will be made available online.
