Muslim Festival of Eid – and interfaith gathering in Cardiff


I attend quite a few events because of my involvement with the Buddhist Council of Wales. A recent event was an Eid Festival celebrating the end of Ramadan. It was an interfaith event, hosted by the Church of Latter-day Saints in Rhiwbina. As well as Christians and Muslims, there were representatives of Judaism, Baha'i, and myself and Ngakpa 'ö-Dzin representing Buddhists.

It was a joyful event and rather special – such warmth, friendship and good humour. It is good to share time and food with people following different religions.

We also enjoyed a brief appearance on ITV news:
