Sunday 5 July 10am – 4:30pm
Dharma Day is one of our five main festival days (along with Buddha Day, Sangha Day, Parinirvana Day and Padmasambhava Day) and is celebrated by Buddhists all over the world. Dharma Day celebrates when the Buddha gave his first teaching at the deer park in Sarnath.
The day will include meditation, listening and discussing various Dharma texts and a Dharma Day pūjā.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I need to have been coming?
Everyone is welcome, but the day will be especially suitable for those know the stages to the two meditations taught at the centre.
Do I need to book?
No - just login
I can't make the whole day - can I come for just some of it?
Of course! You're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.
What is pūjā?
A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.
It is probable that there will be several people who have never done pūjā before so we will be sure to give an introduction.
How much does the day cost?
All of our events are run on a donation basis. There is no set charge, we just ask you to give what you can to support the day.
