Padmasambhava Day

Padmasambhava Day

Sunday 1 October 2023 10:15am – 4:30pm

Dear Sangha 

A heartfelt invitation to PADMASAMBHVA DAY!

Please come to the Colchester Buddhist Centre for a Day of finding out about Padmasambhava or deepening connection with the Re-incarnation of Buddha Shakyamuni, the Buddha of Love and Transformation, who brought Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century.

The day will be filled with excitement, devotion and really looking at how we can change our poisons into wisdoms!

If you have any percussion instruments for the puja, you are welcome to bring them.

Bring vegan food to share please and a heartfelt of LOVE!
