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.
High Definition Live Streaming success!
We are pleased to report our first successful high definition live streaming today. It featured the Saturday Guided Meditation class by Ajahn Apijatho. You can watch it here on the BSWA's YouTube channel.
We thank BSWA volunteers Jake Mitra and Michael Loh for this upgrade with the support of Hon. Sec. Drew Bellamy and the BSWA committee. You can expect regular live streams of Friday nights at Dhammaloka starting 7:30pm and on Saturdays for meditation at 3pm Perth time.
Kindfulness, by Ajahn Brahm
Publisher Tim McNeill has returned from a very successful Frankfurt Book Fair. The highlight was a preemptive bid for the new Ajahn Brahm title Kindfulness by the same German publisher who has enjoyed a run of bestseller status of Brahm's previous works in German.
