Sunday 21 December at 2:00 we will ritually say farewell to the old Centre, carry the Buddha statue down the road to the new Centre, and inaugurate the building and its shrine rooms as a place of practice.  With meditation and mantra chanting, all welcome to help to make the transition conscious and meaningful.  Meet at the old Centre, 94 Westbourne Park Villas.  We will be moving all our gear down on the previous afternoon, 12:30-5pm.

These times may change if unexpected things happen.  More details on the move and how you can help here.

MOVING TO OUR BEAUTIFUL NEW LOCATION END DEC

IMG_1641We will move to a new larger building at the end of the year.  We have ideas for reaching more people with meditation and the Dharma.  See here for Paramananda’s thoughts on new projects, outreach, and residential communities, as well as a wishlist for the new centre; lots of help and donations are needed!  And here is Paramananda’s very personal talk on why Buddhist Centres can bring real benefit. Our new  location is very nearby at
45a Porchester Road W2 5DP.
