News / The death of Urgyen Sangharakshita

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Urgyen Sangharakshita at around 10am on Tuesday 30th October. Sangharakshita founded the Triratna Buddhist Community (then Friends of the Western Buddhist Order) more than 40 years ago and the Cambridge Buddhist Centre is just one of many Buddhist Centre's worldwide that form part of this movement.

The shrine to honour Sangharakshita will be in place up until after his funeral on Saturday 10th November, until which time people can come to to pay their respects during the daytime if they wish.

On Saturday 10th November, Ratnaghosha will lead an event from 11.30am - 4.30pm. This will include meditation, live streaming of Bhante’s funeral from Adhisthana and conclude with an opportunity to make offerings. More HERE.

To allow for the commemorations, we have had to cancel Figurines, Dancing with Awareness and the film showing of the Red Turtle all of which were due to take place on 10th November.

There is a Memorial Space on thebuddhistcentre.com, which includes information and an opportunity to make a contribution to a Remembrance page.
