Manchester Earth Sangha Kula offers a ten-part series, held monthly on the second Saturday of the month. Join us here at the Centre for deeper connection and ethical action, which we’ll then take into the city for a street meditation.
1.30 – Shared vegan lunch at Manchester Buddhist Centre. Please bring vegan food to share for lunch - doesn't need to be elaborate - or support one of the local cafés or takeaways
2 pm – Explore ethical living and precepts
2.45 – Silent street meditation in Central Manchester
4 pm – End
Come for the whole afternoon or just the meditation – arrive by 2:45 pm at the Centre for that. It's always safest to check the website before setting off in case the details have changed
In 2009, Sangharakshita, founder of Triratna Buddhist Community and Order, emphasised the need for humanity to apologise deeply to nature and the world. He highlighted the consequences of our actions, echoing the Buddha’s teachings on karma. Sangharakshita urged us to reflect on our lives and their impact on suffering and freedom. He called for a close examination of how we live on our planet, Earth. The Buddha’s threefold path, comprising ethics, meditation, and wisdom, was presented as a way to explore these teachings through personal experience. He emphasised the importance of a supportive spiritual community and cautioned against rigid beliefs and judgments, advocating for a deeper understanding of interconnectedness.
Manchester Earth Sangha comprises people who are part of the wider Manchester Sangha and is organised by Manchester Earth Sangha Kula. The purpose of the group is to:
• Manchester Earth Sangha and the Manchester Earth Sangha Mandate
• Manchester Earth Sangha: Awakening to Life – Love for the Earth
• Parami and Buddhasevaka on YouTube discussing the ideas behind this sort of action
