Saturday 8 November 2014 - Sangha Day
 
A good number of us got together on this day to enjoy a day organised by Katannuta's Mitra study group. Trish, Jackie and Sandra gave talks on different aspects of Sangha: Trish talked about the sources of her inspiration within Triratna; Jackie talked about her experience of Sangha in practice in terms of generosity and kindly speech; and Sandra introduced us to three of the Buddha's closest personal disciples. Annette introduced a discussion on the Group, the Individual and the Spiritual Community and Gill led us in some welcome post-lunch movement as well as a Padmasamabhava mantra accompanied by drumming, during which we pretty much raised the roof! Not forgetting Katannuta, who led us in a metta bhavana meditation.

There then followed the Mitra ceremony of John Freeman in the context of a threefold puja led by Akasharaja. All in all a very rich, diverse and enjoyable day. Sadhu to everyone involved!
