Dharma Night: Enlightenment

July 7 @ 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: Enlightenment

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 Enlightenment: the ultimate awakening of the Buddha into Nirvana. Enlightenment is the supreme goal for Buddhists, representing the highest possible evolution of the human consciousness, into a mysterious state of being that is extremely difficult to describe in words. It is sometimes referred to as the complete freedom from suffering and delusion, something which is profoundly open, connected and beyond our day-to-day vision of the world.

Join us as we delve into the culmination of highest ideals of wisdom and compassion, as well as an introduction to the formula of the three vimokᚣa-mukhas, or entrances to liberation.

** 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.
