It was such a sunny and lovely day on the 11th of June 2017. We had 16 members of our charity around a table and a couple of chairs in Leicester Square, London. Apart from constantly adhering to our Charity’s objectives on the internet, we are also trying to build up our local presence through setting up a small workshop and distributing flyers on the streets on a regular basis. We offer free materials in two languages, as well as free food and drink to anyone who is interested. Our fully trained and friendly volunteers are prepared to answer questions from the public.
It was a very fulfilling day and we were really excited to have people approach us, reading through our materials and asking questions about how to invite and practice Buddhism on a daily basis. We were delighted to be asked how Buddhism can change and improve people’s lives and more importantly the community, and querying about what other workshops might be offered by our charity.
We really appreciated every little help and the participation from our communities. After every event, we always have a few new faces dropping by our Temple. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing them beginning their spiritual path with Buddha and Guan Yin Bodhisattva.
Wishing that Buddha’s blessing will be with you all.
