Padmasambhava Day

Padmasambhava Day

Sunday 19 September 10:30am – 4:30pm

Please join us 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.

This event is open to all and you are welcome to come to all or part of the day. There is no charge for festival days.

Please note this event takes place in person at the Buddhist centre. 

 

You are encouraged to bring instruments along to use in the puja. 

 

If you are staying for lunch please bring vegan lunch to share.
