A Tribute to Uncle Vijaya

BGF is inviting all Kalyāṇa-mittas to a special event to celebrate Uncle Vijaya’s decades of selfless Dhammadūta service! 😀 Uncle Vijaya is a skillful Dhamma speaker. He has the innate quality to translate his insights into the Buddha’s teachings into words that we can relate to. With the judicious use of wit and humour, Uncle Vijaya has helped us better grasp the Dhamma and to discover the gem that it is. He made the Dhamma accessible to all. Join us at this special ceremony to pay tribute to Uncle Vijaya for his lifelong contributions to the Buddhist community which continue to this day. The event will be graced by the Most Venerable B Sri Saranankara.

There will also be Lunch Dāna at 11:30 am. Kindly bring vegetarian food to LG floor by 11:00 am if you wish to offer 🙏
