Last Thursday Rev. Master Haryo, the head of our order, arrived with Rev. Master Mugo for his first visit to Sitting Buddha Hermitage in Cromford (he visited last year when we were in Wirksworth). Several Sangha members took the opportunity to come round and meet him or renew their acquaintance over a cup of tea. On the Friday morning I took my guests for a walk around Cromford, including the mill, the canal and the bookshop. They left on Saturday morning to return to Throssel. It was very good to have them both here and I look forward to seeing them again in September when I go to Throssel for the monastic gathering, where 50 or so monks from the UK, Europe, Canada and the US will be meeting together for 10 days.
