Ajahn Brahm at Cambridge - Prof Bernard Carr

I first met Ajahn Brahm (or Pete Betts as he was then) when we were students together in Cambridge 45 years ago. The story of our meeting is now well-known and even recorded in a YouTube interview with Ajahn. I was a member of the Cambridge University Buddhist Society (CUBS), recruiting new members at the Societies Fair in October 1969. He was keen to join immediately but apparently I urged restraint and suggested that he wait until after the first talk to confirm that Buddhism really was his ”cup of tea”. However, he rejected my advice and joined immediately.

Message from the President

Dear Members,

BSWA can be proud to say that we have made a major breakthrough in obtaining permanent visa applications for our monks and nuns who have taken the vow of poverty and have been instrumental in the change of policy guidelines in Australia for visa applications for our Sangha.

Since 2009, BSWA and all Sangha throughout Australia, have had problems obtaining permanent visas. Unlike clergy of other mainstream religions who are paid a salary, our Sangha would never have been able to meet the minimum wage requirement because of their vow of poverty. This made it impossible for our Sangha to obtain visas under the then legislation.

This was a real problem for survival of Buddhism in Australia. I wrote to the Federal Minister to request for a meeting: -
