St David’s Day Parade

Ngakma Nor’dzin—Chair of the Buddhist Council of Wales—was invited to take part in the St David’s Parade on March 1st.  She was joined by several other representatives of the Buddhist community in Wales, with five traditions being represented in all.

The religious representatives were placed near the beginning of the parade, behind the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.  There were also members of the Salvation Army, and Rev. Aled Edwards OBE of Cytûn.

If we take part again next year, we hope to have a Buddhist Council of Wales banner to add to the colour and pageantry of the event.  The weather was glorious and it was a most enjoyable day.
