For some years now the Wellington Buddhist Centre has been blessed to have Suryagita in our Sangha. She has a beautiful voice and extraordinary musical ability which we have benefitted greatly from in every mantra she has ever been present for. But that’s not all!
On special occasions Suryagita has got together with other talented members of our sangha and offered song. Songs of welcome, songs of blessing, songs of appreciation, songs of celebration and songs of joy.
A lovely opportunity for us to take part in at the International Gathering: Arthasiddhi will be leading a choir every afternoon over the course of the weekend.
A new simple, rousing chant has been written for this event, setting the very words in which the Buddha celebrated the first reaching-out-into-the-world of the Sangha - we will be singing it in the final puja. Come and enjoy singing this chant and other simple harmony music including African chant; raise your voices...
Mantras and other things! Starting with an excerpt from Vandanajyoti and Vishvantara’s song to mark the event, we get some lovely songs, mantras, chanting and and readings from the Saturday evening puja at the women’s UK& Ireland Order gathering at Adhisthana. The joy of Dharma practice in large numbers!
The SP fan club! We gathered in large numbers Wednesday night, September 25th, at the San Francisco Buddhist Center to mark Suvarnaprabha’s death and support her and those who knew her in this transition time.
