On Saturday I performed a blessing for my friend's unborn born baby. Although it is her second child, she is very anxious about the birth and one of her friend's suggested she should have a 'motherhood blessing.' This turned out to be just a party, but I volunteer to give a Buddhist blessing.
Sujatin was extremely helpful and gave me her notes from a baby naming ceremony she had performed some time ago. I have copied the poem I read for you blow.
On Saturday our small group met for the first time. Richard, Kaspa and I discussed ideas for future meetings. Richard had come up with the very promising idea of a reading/discussion group. Afterwards we had a practise session lead by Kaspa, we were joined by my housemate John. Good to be practising in Birmingham at last and looking forward to future meetings.
