Virtual Event Virtual Event
Silabodhi and Lokeshvara

Everyone welcome to join us as the Chair Handover Ceremony is live-streamed from the Big Sangha Retreat at Adhisthana. During the ceremony the role of Chair of Manchester Buddhist Centre will be ritually handed over from Silabodhi to Lokeshvara.

Silabodhi has been our Chair for around five years. This will be a great opportunity for us to express our gratitude for everything that he’s given to us during that time, seeing us through the pandemic, improving the Centre’s finances, and asking difficult but necessary questions about the future location of the Buddhist Centre. It will also be a chance to welcome Lokeshvara, a highly respected Order member who was an International Order Convenor for eight years and was previously Chair of Padmaloka Retreat Centre.

The Chair of the Buddhist Centre is a central position in our community. The Chair the key source of spiritual, strategic and operational leadership for the Centre, ensuring a clear, inspired vision for the future whilst supporting a vibrant and healthy sangha.
