On Sunday 20 May 2018 several members of the Hampshire Buddhist Society met at Chithurst Buddhist Monastery to celebrate Vesak. It was a beautifully sunny early summer's day to commemorate the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha.
The next special event at Cittaviveka is the International Thod Pha Pa on Sunday 17 June 2018. [link] This will also be a celebration to mark 100 years since the birth of the Thai Forest Master, Ajahn Chah.
