The Che­sham Dis­trict branch of Bud­dhist group, called Soka Gakkai In­ter­na­tional, held an in­tro­duc­tion to Bud­dhism event at Che­sham Town Hall on Fri­day, Septem­ber 4.

About 40 peo­ple turned up to the event which saw gen­eral di­rec­tor of SGI-UK Robert Har­rup speak at the event about ‘How to win in life?’ and he an­swered ques­tions from the at­ten­dees.

Mr Har­rup is of­ten heard on Ra­dio 2’s Pause for Thought.

One of the event’s or­gan­is­ers Phil New­man said: “We had 40 peo­ple turn up which was great.

“There were so many great ques­tions [for Robert] that we ran overtime.

“At the heart of our phi­los­o­phy is a con­cept known as ‘hu­man revo­lu­tion’, whereby the in­ner change sparked by Bud­dhist prac­tice leads to courage, com­pas­sion and wis­dom, fos­ter­ing ful­filled in­di­vid­u­als with a wish to con­trib­ute to cre­at­ing a bet­ter world.”
