BGKT Buddhist Group of Kendal (Theravada) assisted at the wedding of an attendee of the group who has attended since BGKT's first meeting.


The wedding was held on 8th July at the Unitarian Chapel Kendal, led by Rev Mandy Reynolds (Interfaith Minister and Kendal Unitarian Chapel Ministry Team Leader). A Christian Clergyman gave a Gaelic Blessing and a reading from the Bible.

As far as BGKT is aware this is the first wedding in Kendal which included a Buddhist blessing and Buddhist chanting by a Buddhist Group. A Buddha statue was displayed in the Chapel which was decorated with Tibetan Prayer flags.

Bodhicarini Upasika Jayasili Jacquetta Gomes gave a wedding blessing in Pali and English.

Upasaka Sumedha John Gerrard gave the Panca Sila (Five Precepts). BGKT attendees who have taken the Ajivatthamaka Sila (Eight Precepts with Right Livelihood as the Eighth) for Life chanted these Precepts.

Upasaka Sumedha John Gerrard read The Mangala Sutta and BGKT chanted this in Pali.

Titus Gomes led a Metta meditation (meditation on loving kindness).

Upasaka Dhammika Duncan Fisher gave a reading by The Dalai Lama.
