Visit to the Buddhist Society of Manchester

On December 1st 2018, the monks and temple supporters travelled to Sale, Greater Manchester to meet with members of the Buddhist Society of Manchester

The Buddhist Society of Manchester was founded in 1951, making it the second oldest Buddhist organisation in the country. In 1954 its members supported Venerable Kappilavaddho to travel to Thailand to become the first westerner there to ordain as a Buddhist monk, under the tutelage of Luangpu of Wat Paknam. Dhammakaya and the Buddhist Society of Manchester thus share a common lineage

Everyone present had an opportunity to meet, followed by a meditation led by Phra Ak and the presentation of gifts
