Sangha Project News - June 2011

Gary van Wyk donated and planted 30 indigenous trees in commemoration of the BRC’s 30 year existence. Isolde Mellet gifted 200 magnificent trees! These will be used to extend our indigenous gardens close the main buildings at the Centre, including the soon to be established Buddha Tree GardenKushy Ramjathan, collected vegetables and groceries donated by her friends, and prepares breyani and dessert whenever she visits. The CD Dawn that is played during Richard’s Chi Kung demonstrations has become so popular that Peter Kloppers has willingly supplied more copies for the shop.

We should not forget that apart from these donors, our visiting teachers make a profound contribution. They don’t receive any fees; only whatever Dana is collected for them. The BRC administrative staff only receive their board and lodging and a small stipend for their service to the Centre.

Thank you all!
