Richard Jones

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing away of the London Buddhist Vihara’s long-standing stalwart supporter Richard Jones on 2nd April 2018. Richard was a much loved and admired figure in the Vihara whose knowledge and teaching of the Dhamma was greatly appreciated by so many of us. Although life is impermanent, it is going to very hard for all of us to accept that he will no longer be with us as a thoroughly dependable and loving friend.

May our dear friend attain the Supreme Bliss of Nibbana
