For this video Maitreyabandhu and I interviewed about forty people around the London Buddhist Centre to show newcomers the breadth and depth of practice as well as the activities in the Buddhist village of Bethnal Green.

“The London Buddhist Centre (LBC) is one of the largest urban Buddhist Centres in the West. It opened in 1978 and has quickly become the heart of a thriving Buddhist community in the East End of London. ‘Lotus in the City’ is an entertaining and moving film celebrating the life of the LBC and the surrounding â€˜Buddhist Villageâ€™ through the impressions of some of huge range of people who benefit from it.” Blurb from DVD cover
