Croydon Buddhist Centre
The Croydon Buddhist Centre gift shop serves as our main reception for our Buddhist Meditation classes and our Yoga classes. In addition, sales from the gift shop help to support the charity and contribute to the daily running costs of the building.
The shop is staffed by volunteers from our Buddhist Sangha, who give their time and energy as an expression of Dana - giving. It's also a wonderful way to engage with the local Croydon people and to build friendships.
The gift shop is a veritable treasure trove of sweet smelling and exotic incense and candles, Buddhist Books by Triratna authors, meditation cd's, meditation and yoga equipment, Buddhist Figures, prayer flags and ritual items such as Buddhist Mala Beads and singing bowls.
The shop also stocks a range of greetings cards, many of which support local and independent UK artists. As well as a range of unusual gift items, such as Himalayan Salt Lamps, the shop stocks essential oils and burners and has a growing range of tumblestones and rough minerals.
