MEMBERS of Kirkley WI heard Christine Benson talk about the various branches of Buddhism.
She explained the meaning of the word Buddha, which is one who is awake or is enlightened.
Members asked questions about the talk as many are aware of a branch of Buddhism in the area where these monks dress differently from the speaker.
Giving the vote of thanks, Sally Milner spoke of her meeting with a monk in Durham Cathedral.
Congratulations were given to the domino team who have reached the area finals. Members were given the date of the Jubilee Tea to be held at Catherine Storey’s. They were reminded that two members were organising a dance at Stamfordham in February. A lively discussion took place about the venue for the summer outing. The March meeting will be a talk about Life in the Falklands.
