Ipswich Buddhist Centre celebrates Festival of Enlightenment in town centre
On Wed, 9 May, 2012 - 10:34
Triratna’s Ipswich Buddhist Centre created a splash in the city centre over the weekend as they celebrated the Buddha’s Enlightenment in the Cornhill, Ipswich’s central square. Building on last year’s successful initiative, this year they expanded the Festival to include the Sri Lankan Community (who came and gave away heaps of food), the local Community of Interbeing (Thich Nhat Hanh group), and Soka Gakkai International. Jnanamitra reports - “It was lovely to be celebrating together. It was wet and cold outside - but warm with friendship inside”. The day included people meditating in the window of the local Evolution shop.
The photographs say it all… Lots more on the Ipswich Buddhist Centre’s Facebook page.
