First Mitra Ceremony in Poland

At the beginning of August during an improvised weekend retreat in Polish Beskidy mountains Dharmacari Nityabandhu (left) conducted the first mitra ceremony on Polish soil. Maciek Sowa, aged sixty, (right) became a mitra.

Nityabandhu says: "He used to work in the Polish coal industry for many years, guarding the 'black gold'. Now he is going to help us guard the Three Jewels in Poland and I tell you the man is himself a mine full of sraddha!"

Regular readers will recall that Nityabandhu and others recently purchased a property that will become the Krakow Buddhist Centre.
