Gateway to the World Vesak (Buddhist Vegetarian) Cafe

Last week I went along to the Flemmington Community Centre and took photographs at the Gateway to The World Cafe. Each month a different culture put on a day and cafe. This month's cafe was a Buddhist Vegetarian feast which included a cooking class, a documentary about Buddhism, and a talk on the basic principles of Buddhism by Nun Ven Jou Yao and a talk by Dr May Wang on how to achieve longevity and health using the Chinese Medicine and Buddhism.
Not only did I get an amazing vegetarian meal I also learnt a lot and met some inspiring people.
The next cafe is on the 7th of June and it will be hosted by the Eritrean community.
