Sangharakshita’s Funeral: marking it at the Buddhist Centre Inverness

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing away of Urgyen Sangharakshita (Bhante) on 30 October 2018 at approximately 10.00 a.m. in Hereford Hospital.

We invite you to join us at the Buddhist Centre in Inverness to mark Sangharakshita’s Funeral which will be taking place at Adhisthana on Saturday 10th November between 12.30 pm and 4.30 pm.

We will meet on Saturday 10th November from 11.00 am for an early lunch/brunch together. We hope to have live streaming of the funeral and burial which will include meditation and a specially written Bhante puja that we will join in with. The afternoon will provide an opportunity to share memories, reflect on, and express gratitude for our teacher at this significant time. You may wish to bring offerings. All very welcome.

Please bring veggie lunch/brunch to share and meditation cushions.

Further information is available from thebuddhistcentre.com where there is a dedicated space to Sangharakshita’s memorial page.

Buddha Day Festival

At the annual celebration of the enlightenment of the Buddha members of the Sangha met to celebrate this day. In the morning we heard how Siddhartha found a middle way – moving from extremes and towards balance. After the vegetarian lunch we heard how the Buddha made his momentous decision to teach the Dharma.
If you are visiting the Centre in the next few weeks please feel free to add to the collage of the Buddha that we started.
