As part of our Sangha Nights programme, we hold our annual celebration of the life and achievements of the great Buddhist social reformer, Dr Ambedkar.

Everyone's welcome as our community gathers every couple of months for collective practice, talk and friendship. Each evening will vary but there will usually be some meditation and ritual, a short break around the mid-point and the chance to talk in small groups. Next Sangha Nights are 16th August, 18th October, 20th December

In fast-changing times, it's hard to be completely certain whether our events will go ahead in person, online or as a hybrid of both. Please come back and check, or stay up to date through social media or by joining our mailing list.

About Dr Ambedkar

In 1956, Dr Ambedkar converted to Buddhism to escape the hell of the Indian caste system. This started the revival of Buddhism in India, as many of his followers converted too, gaining a life of dignity and respect.
