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.)
Dhammachari Vidyaruchi pays his tribute to Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita. Urgyen Sangharakshita died on 30th October, 2018 at 10am, Hereford, UK. Vidyaruci has personally worked for Bhante for four years and formed a very deep connection with him. As you could clearly see in this interview.
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...
The Funeral of the Venerable Urgyen Sangharakshita August 26, 1925 - October 30, 2018
Our online coverage starts just before the funeral ceremony begins, at around 12.20pm UK time. There will be a live video stream of the ceremony, as well as a regular stream of updates on social media throughout the day.
Mon, 5 Nov, 2018 - 23:01We had a very moving Manjushri puja for Bhante last night.
People of all levels of involvement joined in and seemed very attentive.
It’s a strong time of practice - another gift from Bhante.
