An In-Person Event, Here at the Buddhist Centre

Celebrating a Key Buddhist Figure
Join us for our annual Dr Ambedkar Festival, where we learn, explore and celebrate the pioneering Indian social reformer who was such an inspiration to our founding teacher, Sangharakshita.
Who is the event for?Suitable for anyone who has experience of our two meditation practices, Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana, and is open to Buddhist ritual.
Supporting the CentreAlthough we're now back open for four days a week, with some of our classes now back at the Centre, these are still difficult times for us. Being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
Celebrating the Lotus-born Guru, Padmasambhava
Padmasambhava is an important figure in the Buddhist tradition and in the Triratna Buddhist Community. He stands at the mysterious crossroads where history and myth meet and his “Life” transcends space and time. He is especially associated with being able to help us transform demon energies into spiritual qualities. He shape-shifts and fascinates us to go beyond ourselves into unimagined realms.
