It has been with a mixture of sadness, joy and much gratitude, that we have marked the passing of Bhante Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Community and Triratna Buddhist Order, with two events so far.  Bhante died on Tuesday 30th October, 2018. 

On Wednesday 31st Oct. a 2 hour vigil was held at the Centre, with meditation and chanting mantras.  Last night on Friends Night, a large number of people - friends old and new - celebrated and remembered Sangharakshita’s life and legacy with readings, meditation and puja.  We thank Bhante from the depths of our hearts.  We Go for Refuge to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha with Bhante, our teacher, as our guide.
