Statement from the council of Glasgow Buddhist Centre on 5th June 2020
The council of Glasgow Buddhist Centre affirms our commitment to equality, human dignity and social justice. We aspire to understand the impact that racism has on us all.
We are heartbroken that systemic racism and the ongoing hostility towards black communities has resulted in the murder of George Floyd while in US police custody. We invite our whole community to examine our own prejudices, have the courage to speak...
We have been gathering in the Glasgow Buddhist Centre to celebrate and honour Sangharakshita’s incredible life and legacy.
We had a beautiful Puja on Tuesday 30th October, shared food followed by a Celtic Puja on Saturday 3rd November where many people shared their memories of Bhante, and a Bodhicitta Puja in honour of his work and life on Sunday 4th November.
