    The Gift Relationship
    Talk and discussion with Vaddhaka.
    The talk will be based on a theme drawn from Vaddhaka's book The Buddha On Wall Street, which will be released during April.
    At the heart of modern capitalism are values that are incompatible with Buddhist values. Capitalism promotes greed and selfishness. Buddhism promotes generosity and altruism. In his talk Vaddhaka will explore these differences and the role that buddhists can play in building an alternative economic world.

Spring Equinox Celebration

with Lalitaraja
Fri 20 Mar 6pm Food to share followed by celebration of Jo and Sylvia on their departure to their ordination retreat followed by meditation, chanting and festive puja with Mitra ceremony.
The Spring Equinox was celebrated as Ostara in pagan times with its associations with the rebirth of the year and with fertility. It is a time of preparation for farmers - there was a tradition of bringing their seeds for blessing at this time. Bring seeds, actual or conceptual, to be blessed as part of the puja. The word blessing comes from an old English word meaning to make sacred, so we’ll bring our ‘seeds’ whether they are flowers for the garden or intentions for our life to make them sacred so that as they take root and grow into our life they do so with our best intentions.
