16th Death Anniversary of Rev Gyosei Handa's passing

This year marks the 16th anniversary of Rev Gyosei Handa's passing (02.12.1956 - 21.08.2007).
During his lifetime Rev Handa worked tirelessly for the creation of peace through his practice and work at the temple and the wider world, when we look around us his presence and influence continue to guide and inspire us.
His practice was very much an example to all especially the paying of respect to the Buddha Nature with in all people and like the Bodhisattva Never Despise from the Lotus Sutra he practiced this towards all and never wavered in this. This practice is the very foundation to building a more peaceful and harmonius world and in this Rev Handa remains a true example of a warrior of peace to guide and inspire us all.

Fun Fair

These are some photographs of me going to Willen Lake Summer Funfair.

A funfair is an event held in a park or field at which people pay to ride on various machines for amusement or try to win prizes in games. The people who organize and operate it usually take it from one place to another. We all love to frighten ourselves by going on hair-raising rides at funfairs.
