Venerable Bogoda Seelawimala, head priest of the London Buddhist Vihara, has been invited to attend the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. He will be the first Buddhist monk ever to attend a royal wedding in Britain.
Bogoda Seelawimala, the most senior Buddhist monk in Britain, was once visited by Prince Charles in 2005, after the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.
Bogoda Seelawimala took the opportunity to offer some sage advice to the soon-to-be newlyweds. He suggested that the key to a happy marriage is meditation: “Discuss your problems and meditate together each morning to empty the mind of all your problems.”
