What People Say

  • I attended the Buddhist Path of Peace and Purpose last night and just wanted to say thank you. I am so pleased I finally made the time to attend! Ven. Drolkar was fantastic. She explained the concepts clearly, with a warmth and great sense of humour. I made my way home last night feeling a definite sense of calmness and a confidence that I had made a very important first step.
