Sunday 8 March 10am – 4:30pm
‘The Buddha stands amid the darkness like the sun in the three worlds’
The day is an opportunity to look at how we can transform ourselves and the world we live in through our practise. And will draw upon themes from the Sutra of Golden Light.
‘He is a Buddha-sun removing the obscurity of darkness with his rays of compassion’
All of our day events run a “bring and share” style lunch, so please bring food to share. All food brought into the centre must be vegetarian, but as many of those attending will be vegan, we suggest vegan only food.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I need to have been coming?
The day will be suitable to all men who are familiar with the two meditations taught at the centre.
I'm not a very good cook - what food can I bring?
We can never have enough of the basics: things like salad, bread, hummus, crisps and fruit always go down well.
Do I need to book?
No - just turn up!
I can't make the whole day - can I come for just some of it?
Of course! Many people who come for half the day will come just for the morning, leaving at lunch time, or the other way around. But you're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make.
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.
Why is puja?
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.
