Dharma Day Celebrations

23rd July @ 2:30 pm - 7:30 pm BST

Join us for our annual Dharma Day Celebrations!

For our Dharma Day celebrations this year we will be joined by leading Buddhist teacher and long-time Brixton friend Vajratara, who will be leading a special study session as part of the day, and we will be celebrating as two members of our Sangha, Steph and Richard, make a formal commitment to the Buddhist path by becoming Mitras.

When we start to meditate we get some more perspective on the way our minds work.  At times inspiring, at times frustrating, we see our whole mental landscape laid bare.  The Dharma is a unique system for delving deep into the process of mind.  Instead of exploring the outer world, sending rockets into space, the Dharma explores the mind itself, sending investigative awareness to the inner reaches of consciousness.  Why is it that we seem to go around the same mental loops again and again?  What is really controlling the patterns of thought we follow?  How can we change it to be more creative in our thoughts and resulting actions?

This Dharma Day, Vajratara will explore the workings of our mind using a sutta that was said to be as sweet as honey…

Join us for what promises to be a fascinating study session, to welcome our new Mitras, and to practise and celebrate together with meditation, ritual and community.
