Inaugeration of the Three Wheels Stupa

On Sunday we attended the inaugeration of the new stupa in Brookwood Cemetry. This Stupa was built by Three Wheels Temple with a bequest they received from a Zen monk. It is sited in Brookwood because four young Japanese were buried there in the nineteenth century - the first Japanese to come to England to study Western technology. The cenetry is very old a beautiful, with old trees and decaying Victorian monuments. Traditional Japanese music added to the poignancy of the occasion.
