The Urygen Sangharakshita International School in India

Posted by Sadayasihi to Triratna News on Mon, 12 Mar, 2018 - 12:46

Subhuti: Retirement from the College

Posted by Saccanama to The College of Public Preceptors on Fri, 1 Dec, 2017 - 18:02

Retirement from the College 

As I have been approaching my 70th birthday in December this year, I have for some time been considering retiring from the College. After consulting with Bhante, Saddhaloka and his Deputies, the Adhisthana Kula members, my own Indian Kula, and other close friends, I have decided to take that step. This has therefore been my last College meeting as an active Public ...
