Ajahn Brahms 70th birthday celebrations

BunksBunks Australia Veteran

Hi all

Yesterday the Buddhist Society of Western Australia celebrated Ajahn Brahms 70th birthday.

The video is 4 hours long but worth a look if you are a fan of his teachings. A real trip down memory lane!

He has committed to using all donations received to build a retreat centre at Newbury here in Victoria (the monastery I attend).

I was shocked when he announced at the end of proceedings that an anonymous donor had contributed $700,000 😮

People are amazing!

I also saw someone hand him a set of car keys at one stage (presumably attached to a car!)

    Wonderful that people like Ajahn Brahms can still inspire such generosity.
