Rains Retreat Program Armadale Group 2014
We have an exciting program at the Armadale meditation group for Rains this year, following on the huge success of last year's program.

Gender Equality Petition
You may have heard of the recent banning of Ajahn Brahm's paper on gender equality at the recent United Nation Day of Vesak in Vietnam. The paper had been approved by the appointed committee, but was then banned about 36 hours before it was to be presented. The paper was on gender equality in Buddhism, which was directly related to the conference theme of the UN Development Goals.
