|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 10:30 am on Sunday, repeating indefinitely

Candle

A fortnightly get-together for anybody interested in and inspired by Buddhist ritual. We gather together, spend a little time with one another, and then quietly make our way up to the shrine room to connect with that which is most important to us.

No Puja Group on 6th March as we will be getting ready for Tom Llewellyn’s Ordination at 2pm – do join us there online


A Morning of Devotion and Ceremony

Through a regular and sincere practice of puja, in company with our fellow aspirants, we can refine our emotional positivity to such a pitch that we begin to break through our habitual self-centredness and isolation, and feel an empathy with all life

About Buddhist Ritual

Ritual is an aspect of Buddhist practice that can feel quite alien and even strange to our modern temperament. Despite this, many of us have found that engaging in puja – Buddhist ritual – has become an important part of our Buddhist life. It can help bring our values into our lives in a more embodied and wholehearted way – from our heads to our hearts.

During this morning, we’ll be led by one of our regulars in a ritual. Often it’s the seven-fold puja, but sometimes it’s something different too. We want to create an atmosphere of quiet contemplation. It’s rare in our busy world to have time to be still, so these sessions can be a precious opportunity to let go of our busyness and listen to the deeper currents of our being.

If you’re familiar and comfortable with Buddhist ritual and want to come along, do just turn up – no need to book!

Before coming here, please read our advice on visiting the Centre in person. We take Covid precautions seriously and follow all government guidelines. We have air purifiers in both shrine rooms where classes are held, and continue to restrict numbers. Please wear a mask in all public parts of the building and do a lateral flow test before attending any event.

Supporting the Centre

Although the Centre's opening up again now, these are still difficult times. Through the pandemic we have lost much of our income and as a registered charity we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here - choose Donate with Card if you don't have a PayPal account and do get in touch with any queries. Thank you!
