Giving is a fairly simple thing to do: money to a good cause, time to a friend, food to the hungry, energy to a situation. But sacrificing what you hold most precious – your very own life – is an altogether different giving up. How, and why, would you give your life?

Raising Money for the New Vajrasana Retreat Centre

This Spring friends Maitreyabandhu and Jnanavaca will visit 3 east London cafes, drink 3 hot beverages and eat 3 pieces of cake, each.
