Dear Friend, Student, and supporter of Bhante Vimalaramsi,
If you have not seen Delson’s video memorial and tribute to Bhante take a look below.
The day Bhante died, Bhante Kusala, Bhante Samitha and Venerable Obhasa chanted for him and we think he died in a very uplifted state. When we returned to Dhamma Sukha, the retreaters were looking up at the sky and we could see rainbows and circles. Many of us knew this was our playful Bhante showing us how happy he is, and showing us how to have fun!
This is what he would always say to us when we attended his retreats:
“I want you to smile, I want you to laugh, and I want you to have fun!” And he meant it!
So please be happy, and use his incredible example to reach the highest possible level of liberation you can in this life!
He did tell us how to do this with the 6R’s!
May you enjoy the good merits of your continued practice and support of our beloved Bhante Vimalaramsi.
