30 years of meditation in the Welsh countryside

Next year, Vajraloka celebrates its 30th anniversary. In late 1979, a small group of men braved the harsh Welsh winter to start making a group of semi-derelict farm buildings - Ty'n-y-ddol - into a meditation community and a meditation retreat centre for the FWBO.

If you follow the links to the left, you'll find articles about the 'early days' by some of those who were around - Kamalashila, who was here from the start, and Vajradaka, who arrived not long after and stayed for 21 years!
