Amazing! Thanks so much for sharing!!
Leave it to the Buddha to bring the whole community together!
It also shows the importance of cultural Buddhism as a vehicle of bringing Buddhism to the west!
Excellent! It reminds me of the book Such a Long Journey by Rohinton Mistry. Set in the Bombay Parsi (Zorastrean) community, one of the main characters gets a street artist to paint devotional art on a wall outside the apartment block he lives in. Men had been urinating against it and the local council wanted to widen the road and move the wall closer to his home.
wow beautiful story! Probably the offerings of whisky and wine are not very orthodox but the story is very inspiring.
