Discover the Buddhist Studies at Jamyang Buddhist Centre London

Approaching the Buddhist Path

The goal of a student of Buddhism is to become a Buddha: someone who has completely eliminated all toxic, ego-driven states of mind and developed to perfection all the mind’s qualities: wisdom, intelligence, love, and compassion, and so on.

At Jamyang Buddhist Centre London the holistic Buddhist education system integrates various components that work together to transform the mind in this way. These components include:

  • Study
  • Contemplation
  • Meditation
  • Practice: Purification and Accumulation

Below is an overview of the Buddhist Courses and Events at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre.

Upcoming Events

Buddhist Practice

According to the Buddhist worldview, our actions of body, speech and mind leave imprints on our mind. These imprints ripen as our experiences and habits, a process called as karma.

Through aspirational prayers and practices, such as Buddhist offering ceremonies(or pujas), we can change our karma, purifying the negative and accumulating the positive. In doing so, we create the conditions for success in our Buddhist study and practice.

Medicine Buddha Puja

Thursdays,  17:00 – 18:00

While still aspiring to become enlightened, the seven Medicine Buddhas made vows to be of benefit in times of great turmoil and upheaval, making their practice especially powerful for us today.

Morning Practice

Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 9:00

Join the regular online short practices that include motivation setting, prayers and visualisations, as well as scripture and mantra recitation.
