Kaspa writes: In my role as Chairperson of the Network of Buddhist Organisations I was prompted to write to His Royal Highness King Charles III, following the death of his mother HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Here is the letter I have posted today. An earlier version of this appeared on the NBO’s website and social media pages.
As Chairperson of the Network of Buddhist Organisations I am writing to pass on condolences from our trustees and the members of our executive committee. We are keeping in mind members of the Royal Family, who have lost a loved one, and people of the United Kingdom and across the world who are grieving alongside them
Queen Elizabeth II was such a steady presence throughout our lives, a person of consistency in a changing and often chaotic world. I am sure people across the world will experience a whole range of feelings and reactions in the wake of this loss, and pray and hope that we can be kind to each other in the days ahead as we each process this news in our own way.
We also send you our best wishes for your new responsibilities, and pray that you might carry them out with the welfare of the world and all living things in mind.
On Behalf of the Trustees
Network of Buddhist Organisations
