And so should you train to see this world, as a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream, a lightning flash, a magic show, and a dream. – The Diamond Sutra
At the London Buddhist Centre we teach meditation and Buddhism in a way that is relevant to contemporary life. Most of our classes take place at the centre in Bethnal Green, but we also run meditation classes in Central London, and regular retreats.
You can learn to meditate at one of our drop-in meditation classes, by attending a meditation course or by going on retreat. We also run yoga classes, arts events, fairs and festivals – all this in a strong atmosphere of community and friendship. Along with this site you can also find all of our events in our seasonal magazine and programme, and a full listing of our retreats in our Vajrasana 2016 retreat programme.
