Cathkin High pupils received some good Karma recently as they visited a Buddhist monastery.

As part of their current topic about Buddhism, a third-year class took a trip to the Samye Ling Buddhist Monastery in Eskdalemuir near Dumfries.

They were greeted by a ‘Weegie’ monk, a Glaswegian man who had left his family and given up his job to become a Buddhist monk. Under his guidance, the pupils were shown round the temple which was preparing for the 70th birthday of Akong Rinpoche, the founder of the monastery.
