On 19th March, Poetry East, at the London Buddhist Centre, UK, welcomed poet Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury. (Video 44 minutes)

Maitreyabandhu interviewed him. He writes: “We invited Dr Rowan Williams - Archbishop of Canterbury 2002-12, currently Master of Magdalen College, Cambridge -  to talk about poetry, faith, religion and suffering. Here he is in the main shrine room of the LBC, talking to me about his life, his poetry and his faith. He read from his two collections of poetry with Carcanet. It was wonderful to meet him. I was moved and deeply impressed by his seriousness, humanity and and his compassionate outlook.”
