There is some further good news in that the refuge may soon become a more permanent fixture in the area. We found one location that feels just right to set up the temple in long-term. We are just sorting out the details of the charity and trust so that property can be more easily acquired. Your support is needed more then ever to show that if it happens, it will be possible to maintain it.
This puts both the Scotland and Cambridge temples in the same situation. They are both close to being purchased but need the final push to convince authorities, governments, councils, and supporters that they are sustainable.

We lost count at about 70, but we estimate that about 90 people joined us on Sunday to celebrate the passing of merit that we have created to our diseased. We couldn't help but be excited about Ajahn Kovida joining us again, and Venerable Yen from the Mahayana tradition. We were so pleased to have a Sangha here where every member was from a different country and where many traditions were represented.
