5 Years of The Buddhist Centre Online: #1 New Online Spaces and Physical Places

Triratna’s Southampton sangha (UK) are delighted to announce that they will shortly be moving their classes - into a pub! The premises in question is the Plume of Feathers, to be found in St Mary’s, the oldest and most ethnically diverse part of town.

Anyone alarmed by the prospect of Buddhist classes being held in a pub will be reassured to know that  it ceased to function some seven years ago, when it lost its licence  - apparently due to excessive...
