  • NEW YEAR EDITORIAL

    Shrine for losar So here we are having arrived safely in 2014 according to the western calendar. Of course, there is still the Tibetan new year to look forward to on March 3, the transition from the year of the water snake to the year of wood horse.  For me, that is an exiting time…

  • WINTER IS HERE

    SEASONAL GREETINGS TO ALL READERS OF MANY ROADS Am I am imagining that the citiy is less busy than it usually is at this time of year?   Perhaps online shopping has taken off and high street stores are now receiving fewer shoppers.  I remember not that long ago people held back their purchases till the…

  • RECENT ARTICLES

        Hello to all the readers of Many Roads. Up here in Scotland the days are becoming colder and the nights longer.  Out come the warm clothes, hats, gloves, thermals and scarves.  That’s how it is in the autumnal, northern hemisphere.  The scattering of leaves on the pavements adds a certain melancholic poignancy to the…

    Dear Friends in Bodhicharya  This is my last editorial for Many Roads. I did try to give something a little different in my last attempt at an emagazine and in all the posts etc under the umbrella of Many Roads.  I hope it was of some help and interest to some of you at least. …

    Hello Dear Friends, Hoping you are all well.  It has been nearly ten months since I last wrote anything for Bodhicharya’s emagazine, Many Roads.

  • The Last Editorial………….for now.

    As I type this, I can see the golden leaves shimmering in the bright Autumn sunshine in my garden.   It is a beautiful time of the year and one I’ve always loved.  So, maybe it’s fitting that it’s during this season of so many changes that I’ve decided to take a break from the work…

  • Editorial………..ch-ch-ch, changes.

    This last month has brought some significant changes in my life.  Not only have I taken early retirement from my job in the civil service but my two sons, both in their mid-twenties, have also moved out of the family home into their own place. If I’m completely honest, leaving my paid work after 30 years…
