Thank you all for the beautifully decorated meditation room and the inspiring chanted prayers, I can’t think of a better way to start the New Year.

A splendid evening. It’s my favourite event of the year. Thank you.

Finishing the evening with candlelit chanting as the clock turned the New Year was just magical and we feel so grateful to you for organising this amazing event.
