Bhante’s body lies at Adhisthana and Bhante’s spirit lies at the heart of what we do. During the lockdown the community is circumambulating every evening at 7am in an act of worship, devotion and rememberance.

Here’s a short snippet that was live-streamed last night.

The Funeral and Burial of Urgyen Sangharakshita, 1925-2018

By sanghadhara on Fri, 25 Oct, 2019 - 17:24

The beautiful film of one extraordinary day in October 2018 when tens of thousands of people watching online around the world joined the many assembled mourners at Adhisthana to say goodbye to their friend and teacher, Urgyen Sangharakshita - “Bhante”.

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...
