Bhante’s Birthday Puja

By Khemabandhu on Tue, 25 Aug, 2020 - 15:26

On Wednesday 26th August, Adhisthana will be celebrating the anniversary of Bhante Sangharakshita’s birthday, as will be happening throughout Triratna. I find it hard to believe that only two years ago Bhante was still alive and would have been enjoying the celebrations at Adhisthana – probably with a vegan coffee and walnut cake that he would share with all those around him.

The Buddhist Centre Online is officially 5 years old this month! We first started conversations about what to do with Triratna’s web presence in 2008 and launched some limited public test spaces in 2011, gradually adding social media channels for the project and starting to experiment with content for it all.
