Preparations are underway for the Bodhi retreat here at Amida Mandala in Malvern. It's been good to have Dharmavidya and Elja here for one of our 'ordinary week's, although it's been busier than usual with a Quiz Night (with money going into Amida Trust funds), a book launch/Dharma talk,and a volunteer day to help us prepare the beds, clean the temple etc.
We're all looking forward to visitors arriving tomorrow from all over Europe (and one from the US) and spending a week practising and sharing together. We will record several of Dharmavidya's Dharma talks and also live-stream our 12 hour chanting on Saturday 12th so if anyone wants to tune in do look here on the day: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbJm9gPEAkf8P6y8cFDzAzQ/live.
Hello to everyone here and do let us know if you'd ever like to come and stay with us. Thank you to Dharmavidya and Elja for hosting this space. Namo Amida Bu.
Thanks for your update Satya and I am really enjoying my time in the temple here. Glad we have all these extra days with the temple community :-)
