Triratna Highlands Centre, InvernessOn Tue, 6 November, 2018 - 21:00
We met at the centre on the 31st October , built a Vajrasttva shrine, chanted, listened to Padmolka reading out some of the obituary and rejoiced in Bhante.
The next day a Sevenfold puja and more rejoicings.
Several of us had met Bhante and those who hadn’t said how grateful they were to him for bringing the movement into being - everyone contributed something.
I feel much gratitude for the team who cared for Bhante these last five years.
This time feels precious - I’m so glad to be in this order.
‘Who calms the flames of ambitions for one’s own pleasure,
with the waters of long-cultivated compassion,
Who cuts the net of imaginative fabrications,
by seeing the reality of the profound as it is,
Who carries with tireless heart the responsibility of helping others, to reveal to beings what he sees himself
