Ajahn Abhinando arrived back safely from leading a retreat in Romania. Ian Plagaro-Neil has been at Harnham over the weekend at Kusala House leading a Gateshead Group retreat. Nick Pearce has been here cleaning the chimneys. The world didn't end despite the predictions. On Full-Moon Sunday Luang Por sent out his usual Dhammapada verse and comment, this time with some hints that the Buddha gave on skilfully dealing with self. Anagarika Martin has asked to take up Samanera training. We are looking forward to the arrival tomorrow of Ajahn Ahimsako from Amaravati. He is expected to be with us until next Tuesday 6th and has kindly agreed to lead a lay retreat over the weekend.
