The Rubaiyat, VII by Omar Khayyam
This month, we have a couple of new sections – Humour and Features. In Humour we have Cricket – As Explained to a Foreigner. I’ve never understood the game and understand it even less now.
Dr Gwen Enstam has reviewed Akong Tulku Rinpoche’s enlightening and motivational text, Taming the Tiger, which contains instructions on meditation techniques and the cultivation of compassion in oneself for others.
Kate Roddick, a health-care practitioner has made her first contribution with her poem, Sometimes.
Eddie Buck is back with Days 1 and 2: End to End, recounting his fascinating journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats on a bike.
David Syme is a new contributor with his fascinating account of his visit to Tibet. David is a retired linguist and Changing Tibet is based on a presentation he gave at a University of the Third Age gathering.
Finally, there is a piece I wrote a while ago, I Was There, an account of my time in India when Indira Gandhi was assassinated.
