Sangha Day Celebrations

12th November @ 2:30 pm - 7:00 pm GMT

Sangha Day Festival
with keynote talk from Amalavajra

In our society “friendship” often means something fairly casual or intermittent. Within the Buddhist tradition however, friendship with fellow practitioners (also known as Sangha) is something much more – a meaningful and joyful connection with people who genuinely want the best for us.

We’ve been told that friendship and community is something we’re particularly good at here in Brixton Buddhist Community and our yearly Sangha Day celebration is definitely testament to this.

This year we will be welcoming Amalavajra, an experienced practitioner with many years of living in spiritual communities, as our key-note speaker. Whether you’re a regular or a newcomer, join us for a day of talks, ritual, reflection and many chances to connect with friends old and new.

All are welcome. If you’ve never attended a Buddhist ritual before you are welcome to watch or join in as you wish.

For a general guide on what Buddhist ritual is and why we practice it you can see our explainer videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svkxDMOxABk

At this event, face coverings will be discretionary. The wearing of face coverings at this event is optional but still welcomed if you would prefer to do so.

Led by Maitrinara and Amarapuspa
Saturday 12th Nov
at Effra Space,
21 Effra Parade,
(venue has step-free access throughout)
