Sangharakshita 108 Year Birthday Puja

31st August @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

Sangharakshita 108 Year Birthday Puja

This week we take a break from our summer drop-in series to celebrate the birthday of Urgyen Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triranta Buddhist movement, with a special ritual.

During this evening we, along with other Triratna Buddhist centres across the world, will be performing a seven-fold puja in celebration of our teacher who died in 2018. We’ll be remembering Sangharakshita through this ritual and with some of his poems and writings.

All welcome. If you’ve never attended a Buddhist ritual before you are very welcome to come along, watch and participate as much or as little as you feel comfortable to.

Led by Amarapuspa

No booking required, just turn up.**

Face coverings are also now discretionary. The wearing of face coverings at this event will therefore be optional but still welcomed if you would prefer to do so.

Our classes are free of charge but all donations are gratefully received. We are completely reliant on your gifts to run these events, and to keep them free for those without the means to give financially. We’d suggest a donation of £10/£5 for each event, depending on your income.
