Dharma Night: Buddhist Cosmology

May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST

Dharma Night at the Brixton Buddhist Community

Dharma Night is a public class for anyone interested in understanding and practicing the simple and profound teachings of Buddhism. With practice, this path is said to lead to a state of mind beyond dissatisfaction and suffering, toward a mind that is light, spacious and filled with joy.

This class is especially suitable for those newer to Buddhism, who might be exploring Dharma teachings for the first time.

Each week covers a fundamental Buddhist theme or teaching and is built around a discussion between two experienced teachers. There will also be a short guided meditation, tea break and a chance for questions.

Dharma Night: Buddhist Cosmology

At Dharma night we explore the Three Jewels, representing the ideal of the Buddha, the path of the Dharma and and the community of enlightened practitioners, who work to radiate the light of awakening into the world.

This nine week series will look at glimmering facets of the Dharma jewel; the tangible path to Enlightenment taught by the Buddha and his followers down the ages.

This Wednesday we will be exploring Buddhist Cosmology. The Buddhist vision of the Universe closely mirrors that of modern science, in terms of its remarkable scope and scale, which is seen as an almost inexhaustible vastness of space and time. We will look into the Buddhist view of the cosmos, see how this understanding has been arrived at from a place of deep contemplation, and explore what such a vast panorama might mean for our practice.

** Please note – social distancing and wearing of masks is required to attend this class. **

Spaces are limited, so a free booking is required to reserve your place.

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.
