Belladrum 2014

Belladrum Festival 2014 just finished, and we were there, providing some quiet space and meditation in our yurt in the corner of the Walled Garden. “Quiet” in a relative sense, because we were right opposite one of the stages!

But it was a good time and a joyful fixture in our yearly calendar. Here’s a few pics:

Yay! It stays up!

Suriyavamsa’s Journey

Following the official opening of the newest Buddhist Centre in Scotland, Suriyavamsa (President of the Highland Buddhist Centre) set off on foot to the oldest Buddhist Centre in Scotland, via the Dava Way, the Lairig Ghru, the drove road through Glen Tilt, Dhanakosa, the Tayside Way, the West Highland Way and Sauchiehall Street. It’s his mythic journey, and you can follow him on Facebook.

Some photos of his departure:


She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Next week’s Sangha Night (26th June) is an outing to see Macbeth at Brahan Estates. We’ll meet at the gate at 6pm. Hope to see you there!
