Dharma Day

Sunday, July 22nd at 10:30 am - 6:00 pm

Buddhism exists because the Buddha taught others how to find Awakening. How his teaching began, and its consequences, is a dramatic story – and full of significance for us today. On Dharma Day, we come together to celebrate and honour that first transmission of the Dharma with a day of readings, reflection, meditation and devotional practice. Open to all. Bring vegan lunch to share.

In its highest form, it’s one of the three refuges at the very heart of Buddhism, alongside the Buddha and the Dharma. Join us to explore, enjoy and celebrate the sangha at WLBC and beyond.
