Join the next drawing herbs workshop at the Courtyard Cafe.
Chokhor Duchen, one of four annual holy days marking important events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha, takes place this year on 21 July.
On Chokhor Duchen we celebrate the Buddha’s first teaching, also known as the first turning of the Dharma Wheel. It’s also International Sangha Day, when the FPMT family celebrates the community of monks and nuns who have chosen a life in ordination as their spiritual path, for the benefit of others.
On Saturday mornings, locals and refugees come to practice yoga at Jamyang London Buddhist Centre, near Kennington tube station. The sessions for refugees are always free, as part of the social project “Yoga for Refugees.”
Yesterday (31 May 2023), marked the 49th day of the passing of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. In Kopan, and around the world, an ocean of prayers and practices were done for Rinpoche’s swift return. Jamyang London Buddhist Centre was no exception, with Geshe Namdak leading the community in prayer.
This gathering is for LGBTQ+ folks studying Buddhism and are interested in discussions about intersections of Buddhism and LGBTQ+ identity.
