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

Bhante visits the Four Winds Summer Retreat, 1976

… 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.
