The pupils at the ITBCI school in Kalimpong, northern India, recite mantras for Bhante, led by the headmaster, Jampel Khalden. The school was founded for Tibetan refugee children by Bhante’s teacher, the late Dhardo Rinpoche.

(Bhante was buried with his head resting on Dhardo Rinpoche’s yellow monastic robe.)

The Himalayas, 1950s - links to Triratna tradition

By Suryaprabha on Thu, 31 Oct, 2013 - 17:28BACKGROUND is a 42 minute film I made with Ratnaketu in the style of a pilgrimage to the hermitages and monasteries of Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Sikkim assoiated with Urgyen Sangharakshita, the TBC’s founder, and his principal teachers, Tibetan, Indian and Chinese. A beautiful Himalayan peak, Khangchendzonga, overlooked a resurgence of Buddhism, rather ironically first in the ‘West’ and then the ‘East’.
