support our work:meet the team!
Birmingham Buddhist Centre, UK, has a new Chair. Maitrisara writes:
“At the Birmingham Buddhist Centre, we have been welcoming our new Chair, Singhamati, and saying goodbye and thank you to Samacitta, our Chair for the last eight years. Samacitta is returning to Australia to care for her elderly mother.
The handover took place on on Triratna Day, 10th April, within the context of a sevenfold puja led by Paramartha, our Centre President and attended by nearly one hundred people.
On Friday 8th April, we spent an evening rejoicing in Samacitta, just to make absolutely sure that she knows how loved and appreciated she is. She’s got the message quite clearly now!
Singhamati will join the team in June with her many qualities and capabilities; we are looking forward to what the next phase of the Centre’s life brings.
Singhamati is probably best known in Triratna in Europe for her groundbreaking work with the Young Buddhist project. Before she lived and worked at Taraloka for several years. The appointment process involved the local Order as fully as possible and she comes into the role with the whole-hearted backing of the Order mandala in Birmingham.
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!”
