Sangha Day Festival 2020

Sun 29th Nov : 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

We're not sure yet whether this event will go ahead online using Zoom or in person at the Centre, or possibly a mixture of the two. Online is the most likely possibility. We're currently mostly closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and are updating the site regularly so please come back and check frequently. You can join our mailing list to stay up to date with new and changed events here or follow us on social media.

On Sangha Day we celebrate our spiritual community in one of the four main Buddhist festivals in the year, usually held at the time of the full moon.

More about festivals and ritual

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.

No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start. No charge, but as an unfunded charity, we rely on the generosity of people who use and value the Centre to help cover running costs, over £6,000 a week. We will welcome donations on the day and beyond.

Can you help out on the Day?

We often need friendly Sangha members to help make this sort of event run smoothly. Much of the work is done before and after, so you'd still be able to join in with everyone else. Please contact Sundeep on sundeep@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk if you are interested in joining the organising team. Thank you!

Sangha Day Programme – provisional

Please be here in time for a prompt start in the Lotus Hall at 1.30
12.30 pm: Lunch: There will be a lunch break during the day, but given the current circumstances, we are asking people not to bring vegetarian food to share. Instead, we ask that you simply bring your own vegetarian food for lunch. Alternatively, there are many places nearby where you can buy lunch. 
1.30 pm: Introduction, meditation, readings, talks, reflection, discussion, Puja
5.30 pm: End
