Events to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the London Buddhist Centre:
To celebrate our 40th anniversary we’re opening our doors for anyone and everyone to find out about Buddhism, learn to meditate, try a taster session in Breathing Space or just have a look around.
The London Buddhist Centre started out as a burnt out fire station. It was transformed by a group of young, dedicated men and women in the 1970s. A chance for those who were involved to come together and rejoice in what they have given to so many.
We conclude our month-long celebration with a celebration of community and friendship. Friendship is central to the Buddhist conception of spiritual community, a community that reaches out to all people. Sangha Day is a celebration of the ideal of community based on friendship, shared values, empathy and courage. The day will conclude with Mitra ceremonies.
Meditation and mindfulness through the night. See the New Year in with others in an atmosphere of contemplation, turning towards what is most meaningful and vital.
