Farewell to Sally

The ashes of Sally Masheder, longtime Secretary of the Network of Buddhist Organisations, were scattered at a ceremony at the Western Chan Fellowship’s Maenllwyd retreat centre on Sunday, 15 August. Photos of the event are available on the memorial website, http://mrwm.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/sally.html.  Present there were Rev. Saido Kennaway and Yann Lovelock, representing NBO, and Ann Lovelock representing another of NBO’s supporting organisations. The ceremony was led by John Crook, following a short service in the centre’s chapel. The ashes were taken to a streamhead further up the hillside and scattered by her husband Mike, her children Jiva and Nick, and her three grandchildren, following which there was a fire puja accompanied by the chanting of the Kuan Yin mantra.
