Friday at the International Gathering

By Munisha on Fri, 25 Aug, 2017 - 22:08

It’s been a lively, warm and sunny day here in Herefordshire, UK. Our numbers swelled to around 330 by the end of a well-spent day.

The shrine tent was impressively full for 7am meditation, well rewarded by the efforts of the Sheffield Porridge Team, who cooked porridge for 200. Later in the morning the Polish sangha introduced themselves, after which Prajnaketu, Young Buddhist Co-ordinator, gave the morning’s excellent talk (without notes), entitled “The Return of the Bodhisattva”.

And what about the children?

By Munisha on Tue, 27 May, 2014 - 09:48Here’s a lively Polish contribution to the children’s evening entertainments.
