First Buddhist Scout group in UK launches in Manchester
from 2 December, 2017
On Sunday, the UK’s first Buddhist Scout group will launch in Manchester. While it will cater primarily to young people from the city’s Buddhist community, it will be open to all young people in the local area who want to take part in Scouting.
Set up by the Manchester chapter of the Buddha’s Light International Association (BLIA), the group will meet at the Manchester Fo Guang Shan temple every Sunday. More than 20 young people aged between eight and 14, and five adult leaders, have signed up so far.
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes
"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
