Buddhist Vihara Society (BVS)-Bi–MonthlyCommunity Lecture Series are presented
On the Esala full moon day in July 16th, 1989, a group of forty people gathered at H. W. Fletcher Housing Co-op in Vancouver to listen to a talk on Buddha's Path. This was an exciting talk. A hat was passed around to collect the rental fee for the hall. Subsequent to the talk, the idea of meeting once a month was tossed around and heartily endorsed by all the participants.
