Other events

Padmasambhava Day with Mitra ceremonies

On the afternoon of Sunday 20 September from 2 - 5 pm, we will be celebrating the life and influence of the great yogi Padmasambhava, a semi-legendary figure who is said to have introduced Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century and who is revered by many Tibetans as the Second Buddha. We will also be welcoming six new Mitras to our community - a Mitra being someone who has, at least provisionally, committed to Buddhist practice within the Triratna community. Join us to rejoice in their merits and witness their commitment.

The afternoon will run like this:

2pm Welcome and meditation

2.40 Talk by Akasharaja on "Padmasambhava and the Cremation Ground - turning towards our fears"

3.10 Breakout rooms

3.30 Tea break

3.45 Threefold puja and Mitra ceremonies

Please note that attendance in person at the centre will be limited to the leaders, the new Mitras and their guests and one or two others. You will need to log in with the usual Zoom code to take part.
