It is with great Dhammasangvega that we heard the news of the demise of beloved mother of Venerable Dr. Khammai Dhammasami, the General Secretary of ATBU, IABU and the abbot of Oxford Buddha Vihara. She has been suffering with cancer and finally gave up to keep her khandhas remained intact. Certainly, her death is a great loss to Ven. Dr. Dhammasami and his family members. Her funeral is taking place on 24 August 2008.
Our deepest dhammasangvega go out to Venerable Dr. Khammai Dhammasami and his family members. May she be born among us till she achieves nibbana in her journey in sansara.
Aniccā vata saṅkhārā Uppāda-vaya-dhammino
Uppajjitvā nirujjhanti Tesaṃ vūpasamo sukho
Inconstant are compounded things. Their nature: to arise & pass away.
They disband as they are arising. Their total stilling is bliss.
