The Ceremony of Interring Rev. Saidō’s ashes in the Stupa

This ceremony was held at Telford Buddhist Priory in early October 2023, with the sun shining brightly for the occasion. About 80 people attended, many travelling from a distance. The event was ‘filmed’ by Rev. Master Aiden Hall, Prior of the Turning Wheel Buddhist Temple in Leicester, and expertly edited by Rev. Master Roland, resident at Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey. Bows of gratitude for your work.

Rev. Aiden wrote about the event in their November 2023 Newsletter.

As the anniversary of Rev. Master Saidō’s death approaches (he died March 3rd) there may well be updates here. And I am so sorry to all the regular Jade Mountains readers. I’ve been quite busy, one way and another, since Rev. Saidō’s departure. However, things are easing and I hope and intend to get back to posting more frequently.

      If I could beam myself over to Edmonton/Canada I’d do it today. I miss seeing all the congregation in Canada. Happy memories.
