Region 1 - Brixton Sai Centre Ladies’ Outing to the Buddhapadipa Temple

The Ladies’ Forum of Brixton Sai Centre organised a trip to the Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon on Sunday 11 August. This was the first Buddhist temple in UK built in traditional Thai design with its magnificent and stunning architecture. Gentlemen were also invited to join us. After our usual weekly group devotional singing programme which set the tone for this visit, a few cars started to make their way there.

The weather was sunny and very beautiful. It was indeed a glorious day to go out, with Swami's Grace. On arrival at the temple, all of us preceded to the main hall. We went in and all sat down quietly as one of the monks was reciting some chants with the congregation. It was a thrilling and delightful experience for all of us to listen to the chants and the ambiance that had created. Having energised ourselves with the divine vibrations, we came outside and had a lovely picnic in the picturesque grounds of the temple which has an ornamental lake, a small grove, flower garden and an orchard. It was a very peaceful place to have lunch.

After our picnic lunch, we all went to a second prayer hall to do some silent sitting and meditation for about half an hour.

We finally finished and went our separate ways. It was truly an enchanting and wonderful day which we will all remember.

Om Jai Sai Ram
