On Saturday 21st August there was the 15th Death Anniversary Ceremony for Reverend Handa Shonin Sama at the Buddhist Temple in Willen.Rev Handa was a Buddhist Monk, the abbot of Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda and Temple until his sudden death in 2007.
During his lifetime Rev Handa worked tirelessly for the creation of peace through his practice and work at the temple and the wider world, when we look around us his presence and influence continue to guide and inspire us.
His practice was very much an example to all especially the paying of respect to the Buddha Nature with in all people and like the Bodhisattva Never Despise from the Lotus Sutra he practiced this towards all and never wavered in this. This practice is the very foundation to building a more peaceful and harmonius world and in this Rev Handa remains a true example of a warrior of peace to guide and inspire us all.
