In 2007, we held the first meeting of what was to become the NZ Buddhist Council, and in 2008 the organisation was incorporated. This year is the Buddhist Council’s tenth anniversary. We are working on two projects to celebrate this milestone.
- A booklet outlining the history of Buddhism in New Zealand and the NZ Buddhist Council, and with a little information on each of our member organisations. If you are interested in assisting with research and writing content relating to the history of Buddhist activities in a particular city or regional part of the country, or for an organisation that has been established in New Zealand for at least 25 years, please contact Sally McAra.
- A Peace Walk in Auckland on Saturday 24 November, from Maungakiekie (One Tree Hill) to Maungarei (Mt Wellington), stopping at several temples on the way. There will also be a Peace Walk in Christchurch (16 November). Details TBA.
