Dear friends in Buddhism,

I want to acknowledge the support the committee and members of the Buddhist Council of Western Australia (BCWA) that have supported us. The BCWA has always been there to benefit of the Buddhist community in Western Australia.

We have been keeping the Friends of BCWA informed via our webpage, Facebook and Twiter of relevant information that may impact them.

Below are some of the activities that we have performed this year.
