Remembering Bhante at the Bristol CentreOn Thu, 8 November, 2018 - 10:50
Here in Bristol we have been experiencing the flow of appreciation for Bhante and connection with him and amongst the Sangha here and world-wide. On hearing of Bhante’s death, a group of dharmacharinis came together to create a shrine and from 4-10pm on the day of his death we had periods of chanting the mantras and just sitting. This continued the following day from 7am - 5pm with a 7 fold puja beautifully led by Moksanandi. Throughout the time since then we have been sharing in small groups (mitra groups, chapters) and had an order gathering on Sunday to share memories of Bhante. As we are not far from Adhisthana, a number of people have been up to participate in the vigil, some will be helping over the weekend and a lot are planning to travel to the funeral on Saturday. This Friday, we will have another period of chanting, meditating, sharing and puja from 2-9pm and on Sunday eve a session of sharing experience of the last 2 weeks.
Metta to you all around the world - there is a strong sense of our connectedness.
