A morning of devotion and ceremony 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.
We’ll be led by one of our regulars in a ritual – often the seven-fold puja, but sometimes something different. It’s rare in our busy world to have time to be still, so these sessions, where we create an atmosphere of quiet contemplation, 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.
• It's always safest to check the website before setting off in case the details have changed
• There is usually no separate Sunday Puja on festival days, Mitra days and so on
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.
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
