After Sangharakshita’s death, the Uddiyana Trustees (the charity which is dedicated to preserving his legacy) renamed the annexe where Sangharakshita spent his final years, Urgyen House.
Urgyen House was Sangharakshita’s home for the last five-and-a-half years of his life. This building and the Sangharakshita Library (which is located in a different building at Adhisthana) provided not only living quarters for Sangharakshita but a place for his entire collection of books, letters, papers, thangkas and artefacts.

Jnanavaca also outlines how he himself views Bhante: a Bodhisattva and a Guru - a ‘Teacher’ with a capital ‘T’.
Here is a video of Sangharakshita’s images that Clear Vision Trust have compiled to mark Bhante’s death. You may wish to screen this at your local Centre or group or at use at home while chanting mantras.
