The Precious Jewel Appeal

Keep the West London Buddhist Centre Shining

Amidst these troubled times, the Centre is a light-giving jewel, both for the West London sangha and beyond, but sadly its brilliance is shadowed by a cloud. Covid-19 and lockdowns have made pre-existing financial difficulties worse. The Centre faces unsustainable losses if we do not act. 

We are launching the Precious Jewel Appeal to raise £50,000 by mid-March 2021.

Please give what you can.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we closed to the public in March 2020 and have moved all our activities online for the time being. We are delighted to keep offering classes at this time to support the community to stay connected and to deepen personal practice whether that’s meditation, mindfulness or bodywork. We have a thriving and diverse community, and you do not need to identify as Buddhist to join in any of our events – just an open mind and a willingness to explore!

We’ve offered all our events on a donation basis during this crisis. If you are able to, please consider making an additional donation to our Precious Jewel Appeal to ensure we can keep offering these teachings into the future.
