Council Member: Chair
‘she who protects spiritual values and is protected by the diamond thunderbolt’
Vajragupta became Chair of the Buddhist Centre in November 2018, having rejoined the Council earlier in the year. She was ordained in 1997 and enjoys sharing her meditation experience and Buddhist practice at our classes.
As Chair, Vajragupta oversees the spiritual welfare of the Centre alongside the other Trustees. The Norwich Buddhist Centre is part of a worldwide Triratna Community, so Vajragupta also ensures that our Centre’s aims and practices are guided by the vision of our founder, Urgyen Sangharakshita, of a progressive and vibrant Buddhist Community.
'he who is endowed with compassion'
Dayapanna joined the Council in September 2005. In addition to taking lunchtime meditation classes on Monday, some afternoons Dayapanna disappears into the small shrine room with others of the Centre Council to plan and direct the affairs of the Centre. At other times he may be seen doing some DIY with Sujana, our Chairman, or carrying out minor electrical work.
