New Chair and Meet and Greet

Yesterday was the meeting of the Buddhist Council of Wales.  Nor'dzin Pamo and her husband, 'ö-Dzin Tridral have been attending the meetings for a few years as Aro Lineage representatives.  Nor'dzin has also been working on the website a little.  Yesterday Nor'dzin was elected as Chair of the Council - a post that lasts for up to three years.

Her first duty as Chair was to attend a function at Cardiff Castle this evening.  Nor'dzin  says: "This was described as a 'meet and greet' with Jon House, the Chief Executive of Cardiff Council, Judith Woodman, the Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Communities, Housing and Social Justice, and a representative of Cardiff Police whose name I did not catch, with representatives of various faith communities in Cardiff.

The main part of the evening took place in the magnificent banqueting hall of Cardiff Castle.  Judith Woodman and Jon House gave information on the work of Cardiff Council to benefit the communities of Cardiff and invited those of us present representing faith communities to keep in touch with them to voice the needs of religious communities in Cardiff.

After their presentations and questions and answers, we were treated to a short tour of the castle.  We visited the Marquis of Bute's bedroom, the small dining room, the drawing room and the library.  Our guide was most informative and entertaining."

The photograph of Cardiff Castle was taken by 'ö-Dzin in December.  Nor'dzin believes that the tour walked up the steps of the circular tower to access the Marquis of Bute's bedroom.
