By Sadayasihi on Sat, 26 Oct, 2019 - 23:41

The Avalokiteshvara mantra featured during the Saturday night puja at the Big One 2019. Earlier in the day Moksatara reminded us in her talk on the theme of ‘Blueprint for A New Society’ of the importance of sangha, and how we can all become hands or arms of the thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

On Tuesday 26th February we celebrated Akashagarbha who had been the men’s Mitra convener for 12 years and had a ritual passing the baton to Achalamuni who has taken on that responsibility.
