This is to let you know, with sadness, of the death of Urgyen Sangharakshita founder of the Triratna Buddhist Community (of which the Hornchurch Buddhist Group is a part). He died today, 30th October 2018, at approximately 10 am in Hereford Hospital. He had been diagnosed with pneumonia and  sepsis.

Please send him your metta.   For those who wish to attend, there are events happening at Buddhist Centres (see  websites for details).  You may also wish to chant mantras for him.  Shakyamuni, Green Tara, Manjushri, Amitabha and Padmasambhava are mantras he himself suggested to be chanted at this time.
