His Holiness Dalai Lama visited UK in May 2008 and gave teachings in London, Nottingham, Oxford etc. Some of our members including Venerable Bhikkhu Sumana (at Oxford) and Venerable Bhikkhu Sujan (at Nottingham) attended his teachings at all three venues. His main teaching was given at Nottingham Arena, Nottingham from 24th -28th May which was attended by up to 10,000 people of all nationalities and faiths. Huge numbers of Nepalese attended his teaching on the last day i.e. 28th May 2008 and took Vajrasattva Initiation. On Sunday, 25 May 2008 afternoon His Holiness answered questions put to him by students of Nottingham. This discussion was facilitated by TV presenter Jonathan Dimbleby.
