Bodhinaga writes from Triratna’s Sheffield Buddhist Centre with news of their most handsome new Buddha rupa, made by Chintamani, who has for many years worked as a sculptor and painter at the London Buddhist Arts Centre, also a Triratna project.

He says - “On Buddha Day this year the Sheffield Sangha unveiled their new rupa. It is set on a beautifully crafted wooden plinth and has a spectacular backdrop, both made by members of the local Sangha. These, plus the new rupa itself, give a dramatic focus to the Sheffield Centre’s Great Hall.

“The shrineroom was packed with about 110 people for an occasion that was both celebratory and devotional”.
