BUDDHISM.

In 1975 a Tibetan Buddhist centre, called Orgyen Chö Ling, opened in Chatsworth Rd., Kilburn. It moved out of Willesden in 1976 but returned in 1977 to no. 76 Princess Rd., Kilburn. The building contains a shrine but is primarily a centre for meditation and study used mainly by Europeans. (fn. 18)
