Sunday 15 September 10am – 4:30pm
Please join Bodhilehi and Sujayini for a day of celebration, practice and devotion in honour of Guru Rinpoche, the greatly precious one.
Padmasambhava is the person credited with establishing Buddhism in Tibet in the eighth century. His remarkable life has always been surrounded in myth, making him a magical and mystical figure. This day is a celebration of his life and his symbolic qualities of vision, fearlessness and transformation.
The day is open to all and you are welcome to come to all or part of the day. There is no charge for festival days.
A full programme will be available nearer the date.

Everyone is welcome, but the day will be especially suitable for those know the stages to 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 - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.
