Padmavajra Talks About Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita

During November's Great Gathering weekend, Padmavajra dedicated the Saturday evening ritual to Urgyen Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community who died on the 30th October this year.

In this moving talk before the ritual, Padmavajra tells us about his relationship with Bhante and Bhante's close relationship to Padmaloka. Bhante founded Padmaloka retreat centre in 1976, spent many years of his life living and writing here and even wrote a poem entitled 'Padmaloka'.
