The shrine in the main shrine room always moves me with its simple yet deeply devotional beauty. I love the vision and the symbolism of having small rupas from Triratna centres around the world incorporated into the shrine. And the gardens are exquisitely beautiful and uplifting. They are an offering.
I feel fortunate that I was staying at Adhisthana, on the International Course, when Bhante died. It was such a profound and remarkable time. It felt very much as though Adhisthana was the heart-centre for people to come to, and to tune into, as we shared our feelings around the passing of our Teacher. The most evident emotion that I picked up from everyone gathering at Adhisthana was profound and deep gratitude to Bhante.
