Croydon celebrated a beautiful earthy Buddha day on Sunday with the theme of Touching the Earth of Confidence. Prajnamala and the shrine team created an amazing shrine with soil, plants and flowers surrounding an image of the Earth Goddess and the Buddha. The day led by Prajnamala, Dhammavijaya and Hridayamati explored our relationship with Mara and how to work with lossening the grip. As well as having a great turn out ad amazing shared lunch, we were really blessed by the weather and could enjoy the garden. In the afternoon we celebrated the mitra ceremonies of three men in our sangha as part of our puja. An amazing day.
