Living Ethically editing work 2007

Fri, 2 Nov, 2018 - 19:53

Working on this manuscript with Bhante from 2007 to 2009 was the highlight of my life. It was an honour and a great joy to be in the presence of his mind at work. He was so methodical and focussed, completely present with the task in hand. At the same time there was no sense of straining or forcing. Occasionally if he felt tired or a little unwell, he would take a break for a few minutes and relax with eyes...

Puja for Bhante in Mexico City

Wed, 31 Oct, 2018 - 23:13

Yesterday evening we got together to do a special puja for our beloved Bhante, in Mexico City Buddhist Centre (Rome neighborhood). We recited Maitreyabandhu’s sevenfold puja for Bhante and also chanted mantras requested by Bhante. Upekshamati led the puja and said some lovely words. Many of us wouldn’t be buddhists if it was not for Bhante and his precious legacy of teachings and the Triratna order.

Last night we had a special night for Bhante. 40 of us were present for the night, which started with Jnanadhara rejoicing in Bhante and the influence Bhante has had on his life and Triratna. We then chanted 108 Shakyamuni mantras for Bhante, and had a special puja for Bhante.

Much appreciation was expressed for Bhante and all that he has done for us. A book of condolences has also been opened here...

Bhante visits the Four Winds Summer Retreat, 1976

Wed, 31 Oct, 2018 - 16:42

… It’s been such a long journey. Hard to express even to myself a fraction of what I’m thinking or feeling. It’s too early to take in, even though we’ve been preparing for years. Confidence and fathomless, mysterious gratitude–and a big warm smile will have to do for today. – And a big mental bear-hug to Vajradipa, who took this picture and who died today.
