This session will be led by Candradipa, on the theme of Liberation through Beauty. He says:

One of the most important aspects of Buddhist practice, of any process of growth, is making sure that all parts of us are transformed. Inspiring and fascinating as ideas may be, they need to enter our hearts and emotions if they are to really change us.

During this session, I’ll be showing how the arts can play a vital role in this process. I’ll introduce us to some of my favourite works of art, so that we can explore their transformational power through meditating on them and discussing them together. These works of beauty have helped me to contact an incredible empathy for others, and deep truths about life. Come along and experience this for yourself!

About the Young Buddhists Group

We're a friendly informal group led by young people for young people, open to anyone aged 18 - 30 interested in exploring and practising Buddhism with other younger people. We meet on the first and third Monday evening of the month. Interested? Just come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with us through the Centre. We also have a Manchester Young Buddhists Group on Facebook.

There's no need to book. We gather together in the Buddhist Centre lounge about thirty minutes before the start of the session and sometimes hang out together afterwards. It'll be great to have you with us!
