2017 London’s Vegetarian Event
On the 30th April 2017, the second London Vegetarian Event was held jointly by the UK Guan Yin Citta– Buddhist Charity Foundation- and the London Chinese Community at Leicester Court, London. Among the attendees taking part were representatives from the Chinese community, including the London Chinese Community, the UK Heilongjiang Association, London Health Qigong Association, and many more.
UK Guan Yin Citta started the event to share information about a vegetarian lifestyle, that is, eating a plant-based diet. The event also featured a variety of different vegetarian dishes and presentations, speakers on topics including science-based health benefits of being vegetarian, first-hand vegetarian experiences, healthcare, practising Buddhism, benefits to mankind, and more.
The event has received an overwhelming response and participants were interested in knowing more about the UK Guan Yin Citta as well as the benefits of a vegetarian diet. The Charity Foundation expressed thanks and gratitude to those who participated and helped to make this a successful event.
2017 London Dharma Propagation Activities
It was such a sunny and lovely day on the 11th of June 2017. We had 16 members of our charity around a table and a couple of chairs in Leicester Square, London. Apart from constantly adhering to our Charity’s objectives on the internet, we are also trying to build up our local presence through setting up a small workshop and distributing flyers on the streets on a regular basis. We offer free materials in two languages, as well as free food and drink to anyone who is interested. Our fully trained and friendly volunteers are prepared to answer questions from the public.It was a very fulfilling day and we were really excited to have people approach us, reading through our materials and asking questions about how to invite and practice Buddhism on a daily basis. We were delighted to be asked how Buddhism can change and improve people’s lives and more importantly the community, and querying about what other workshops might be offered by our charity. We really appreciated every little help and the participation from our communities. After every event, we always have a few new faces dropping by our Temple. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing them beginning their spiritual path with Buddha and Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Wishing that Buddha’s blessing will be with you all.
