Parinirvana Day

Sunday, February 16th at 10:30am - 5:30pm
Reclining Buddha

Parinirvana Day is a traditional festival on which Buddhists come together to commemorate the profoundly mysterious occasion of the Buddha's passing away. It is also a day for reflecting on impermanence and the death of loved ones.  Join us for a retreat-like day of meditation, reflection, chanting and ritual.  Bring vegan lunch to share.  Full programme will be posted here in due course.
