Simhacitta was an Order member who died aged 76. He’d spent the last twelve years of his life living in a community in Bristol. On the day he died, his friends discovered he’d left a cheque for £5000 made payable to the Buddhist Centre on the mantelpiece. They will never know for sure why he did this, but the fact was that the Centre was going through a period of financial struggle and was possibly going to lose their new Centre premises. Not only did Simhacitta leave the cheque, he also left them a gift in his will. The cheque meant they could pay the next few mortgage instalments. Then, once the legalities were sorted out, the gift in the will paid off the bulk of the mortgage, and secured the Centre for generations to come.
