Buddha Day is the most important festival of the year throughout the Buddhist world – the anniversary of the Buddha’s Awakening.
This year we will be launching a new theme that will run through our programme at the Centre over the next year – the Buddha Akshobhya. You can learn more on the day about this significant and powerful Buddhist symbol during the day, and how it can bring forth qualities of confidence and clarity to inspire our practice.
Our programme interweaves periods of meditation, chanting, and contemplation, culminating with a special puja. Come and join us in celebrating the Buddha’s Awakening in an atmosphere of retreat and community – open to all. Bring vegan lunch to share.
