Jnanavaca - Seeing Bhante: A Personal Perspective

Mon, 4 Nov, 2019 - 12:50

Thanks to Everyone Involved in the Funeral of Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita

The trees drop their leaves and work needs to be done. Sunday and Monday here saw community and volunteers taking down chairs, dismantling the shrine in the barn - will it ever be the same space? - and cleaning. Lots of cleaning,...
