Lovely to see so many public preceptors together and hear a bit about the discussions. Well done to get Vajragita online too! I thought the choice of background music was a bit weird…but overal an excellent summary, thank you.

I appreciated this well made and informative little video. I especially liked some of the detail, eg the subtitles. The cuts of Vajragita and Bhante were very moving, and skilfully placed as part of the main theme.
