Devapriya: A Scattering of Ashes

On the afternoon of Sunday March 24 2013, the Buddhafield Family Friendly Village Retreat Heart Team, who were on a weekend retreat at Paddington Farm, Glastonbury, scattered a portion of Devapriya’s ashes.

About 20 people climbed to the top of Glastonbury Tor in the bitter cold, to cast a set of his ashes off to the four quarters as per Devapriya’s last wishes. Making their way down to Lokanbandhu’s field below the Tor, the party scattered a few more ashes at the foot of a tree that had lived on the balcony of Devapriya’s London flat, recently planted in the field as a permanent memorial.
