50 BALLOONS over Stockholm

Celebrating 50 years of Triratna in the world, a few of us in the Stockholm sangha went up to Skinnarviksberget, with a view over parts of central Stockholm (the Town Hall in the background), with 50 balloons in yellow, blue and red. They of course symbolised the three jewels, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. We recited the Transference of merits and self-surrender from the sevenfold puja and then let the balloons go. They wonderfully ‘sailed away’ over the sky towards the north. After 5 minutes they disappeared out of visible sight; all sorts of jokes abounded. Content we walked down the hill to the Stockholms Buddhistcenter, 10 minutes away.

The balloons flew north over Stockholm. We could see them clearly far up in the sky! They were of course environmentally friendly, degradable.
