Join us for a celebration of the Buddhist Festival of Sangha Day. This is an opportunity to focus our attention on the gift of community, to look at its significance in our lives and for the world, with gratitude in our hearts. Through a series of short talks, readings, reflection, meditation, ritual and mantra we will explore the role of Sangha in our lives, supporting us on our path of growth and connection. During the afternoon Puja there will be mitra reaffirmation ceremonies – an opportunity for Mitras to celebrate having taken this step.
