Dhardo Rinpoche's school marks Bhante's death

Sat, 17 Nov, 2018 - 15:29

The pupils at the ITBCI school in Kalimpong, northern India, recite mantras for Bhante, led by the headmaster, Jampel Khalden. The school was founded for Tibetan refugee children by Bhante’s teacher, the late Dhardo Rinpoche.

(Bhante was buried with his head resting on Dhardo Rinpoche’s yellow monastic robe.)

Thanks to everyone - the many thousands - who tuned into our live stream on the day of Urgyen Sangharakshita’s funeral and burial. And to those who have been watching and re-watching since. It’s been moving to read the continuing flood of messages and appreciation from around the world. 

On the day we were faced with a number of unexpected (and some expected!) technical difficulties, and the live stream was effectively broken up across different channels, posts and platforms. Here then is...

thanks so much for all the dedication and work that went into this.  Hours and hours not just of filming but of editing, cutting and all the other onerous tasks that you all do with such positivity and love

Have just made a small donation to Dharmachakra (buddhistcentreonline) and to Clear Vision.  It’s not much but every little helps

Me too. If everyone who watched the video either live or later made a small donation, Clear Vision and TheBuddhistCentreOnline could be funded properly this year. And if we all made a tiny donation regularly every month, they’d be funded in future years too.

Many thanks for making this available
