Dear Arthakusalin,

What a beautiful talk! Thank you very much. This talk was the third most wonderful experience i have had today. The first was listening and watching the Vienna Symphony Orchestra playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with a 96 year old woman in my  assisted living residence. She ,is one of the most beautiful women i have ever met. She turned to me after a period of silence and said: “We just had a beautiful experience, didn’t we?”  The second was at supper when a new resident said (after her relation said that she had had a very sudden cerebral hemorrhage and one day she had been a successful young professional woman and in a moment she had become unable to communicate or walk) “Such is life” with a smile. And the close of my day sparkling with the Dharma jewel.May all beings benefit!           Viriyagita

The kids area at the International Gathering!

We had about 22 children coming to play with the kids area helpers every day, and we had a lot of fun. As the weather was so superb we spent a couple of mornings at the children’s fireplace  - one morning we toasted sausages and gread, and the next we made twizzlers on a stick! Thanks to Meg for a superior recipe, and they were really yummy and...

On our last full day we heard from Triratna Hungary, with a presentation from mitra Tibor Derdak of the Dr Ambedkar High School, which offers gypsy girls and boys a way out of poverty and discrimination. As he said, quoting Subhuti, if the Buddha were to walk down the street in Hungary today, everyone would assume he was a gypsy.

Dhammamegha gave us an excellent talk on the importance of sangha and friendship: ‘Wisdom’s gathering: the difference that...
