Stupa at Telford Priory

We have snow tonight
All is still and bright
Some mellow sadness.

Seeing the stupa
What remains
After cremation?

Brilliant light
Where remains
Saido in the stupa.

It was Rev. Saido’s wish to have his cremated remains interred within the stupa he constructed relatively recently. There are already ashes of two lay sangha members in there.

The ‘how’ and the ‘when’ details will appear here, when I know.

  1. Thank you Reverend Master.

    Memories of Reverend Master Saido,and the great gift of his teaching.

    The teaching remains and grows.

  2. This is so wonderful. Such a beautiful place for our amazing friend and teacher to have his ashes placed. With fond remembrance. Sarah Jane and Tom.

  3. An ancient poet is speaking of Spring and our separation from nature… feel these lines express loss and hope
    “The feeling of separation,
    what is there to say
    But that the heart is
    an endless river of stars” W’en T’ing-yún
