On 10th November about 80 people from the Essen Sangha gathered to say farewell to Bhante. We met at the same time and followed the same programme as the one happening in Adhisthana, celebrating Puja in spirit with those 1400 of you present for Bhantes funeral, reciting the same mantras, listening to the same readings… and in the background seeing images (some of the time) coming in on screen from Adhisthana which helped feel part of a much much greater community joining for this significant moment.

Many people commented afterwards saying what a beautiful and moving ceremony it had been - very positive, and full of appreciation, love and gratitude.
