Bon Voyage to Palaka

Yesterday (Sunday 15th Feb) Buddhists from across the Island met at Sian's house in Ryde to bid farewell to Palaka. This week he moves from Ventnor, Isle of Wight, to Bethnal Green, to be at the FWBO's London Buddhist Centre.

It is always special when the wider Island Sangha comes together for an event and yesterday afternoon was especially so, sharing food, being able to sit together and bidding our farewells to a good friend.

Palaka was in large part responsible for changing the West Wight Sangha from two friends who meditated together into the thriving group that it is now. For this and so many other things I take great pleasure in being able to say once more, thank you, Palaka.
