It is indeed very sorrowful to hear the news that Tripitakacharya, the Most Venerable Kumar Kashyap Mahaasthabir Bhante, the 6th Sangha Anunayaka of Nepal passed away at the age of 85, on Sunday, 26th of February. He was one of the five monks forced to go on exile by Juddha Shamsher, the Prime Minister of Rana Regime, due to propagation of Buddhism in Nepal. He is one of the earliest monks who suffered and worked tirelessly for the propagation of Theravada Buddhism in Nepal. His demise is an irreparable lost for the Sangha and Theravada Buddhism in Nepal. We wish Bhante, may he attain the supreme bliss of Nibbana.
We also like to announce that on this coming Friday, March 2nd at 6.30 p.m. we are going to have Memorial Services with Buddha puja, paritta chanting and sharing merits to departed bhante and all the Sangha members who dedicated their life for the sake of Buddhism in Nepal. The service will take place at International Shakyamuni Buddha Vihara & Vipassana Center, 140 Cottage St. Lynn, MA 01905. After the chanting prayer there will be tea/coffee and other short eat services. Your participation at this memorial service will be greatly appreciated.
