Since we heard the news, we have been having pujas & meditations every evening at the Auckland centre remembering & rejoicing in Bhante. Malini led one for order members on Thursday. Last night I led an evening for order members & mitras. Before and during the 7-fold puja, we read out a passage from the Mahaparinibbana Sutta, excerpts from Bhante’s writings, and selections from his long poem ‘A Veil of Stars’. I shared my memories of him including my last meeting with him a few weeks ago. A sad yet joyful evening of appreciation for Bhante. There will be another puja tonight led by Purna that is open to all.
