It was the first Theravada vihara I ever went to! If you scroll down two thirds of the way through this blog entry ( http://imagesoflondon2007.blogspot.com/ ... -west.html
) you can see my little 'review' of it. Well worth checking out if you're nearby!
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'. (Snp 3.6)
