Manchester Buddhist Convention 2016

One Root Many Branches

Once again we join local Buddhists from many traditions for a day of shared practice and friendship. The theme this year is Buddhism in Dialogue. There will be speakers and meditation practice covering a range of different Buddhist traditions, along with a series of workshops. The Convention has been running since 2006 in various venues, and this year we are hosting it here at Manchester Buddhist Centre.
