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.
