Friends Drop In Coffee Morning
Our next coffee morning will take
place on Friday 7th February.
6 week Going Deeper Course starting Weds 29th Jan 2020
This course led by Mokshadarshini and Kalyananara, will explore our responses to consumerism, the environment, technology, money etc etc. This course is suitable for those who have previously done Buddhist Study and are familiar with the meditation practices taught in Triratna. Please book for this course in advance.
Sunday 16th February, 11am to 4pm, we will celebrate Parinirvana Day - the Buddhist festival marking the last few months of the life of the Buddha, and then his death and Parinirvana. The festival is also a time when we can reflect on our own mortality, and when our thoughts turn to loved ones who have died. In the morning you are invited to bring photos of people you knew who have died. There will be space to put your photos on the shrine and we will do a special metta bhavana honouring and remembering the dead. After a shared lunch (please bring veggie/vegan food to share), the second half of the day will focus on the Buddha - with a puja, with readings and reflections, on how the Buddha lived his last months, how he approached death, and also on the mystery of the Buddha's Parinirvana.
