Seated under the Bodhi Tree, 2500 years ago, the Buddha woke up to way things really are. He then spent his life teaching this truth, this Dharma, for the benefit of all living beings.
The Buddha’s awakening came sometimes to be known as the opening of the Dharma eye. It’s as if, buried deep within us, a third eye - the eye of spiritual vision - waits silently for its moment to come.
Join us for this very special festival in which we’ll celebrate day the Buddha began to teach the Dharma. Through ritual, meditation and personal stories, we’ll begin - perhaps - to open the Dharma eye within us. The day will be held at the Aryatara community, 3 Plough Lane, Purley, CR8 3QB
There will be the opportunity for a shared lunch - bring vegan food to share!
Morning session - 10:30am to 12:45pm
Shared lunch - 1pm to 2pm
Afternoon session - 2pm to 4pm
(Come along for some or all of the day.)
Dana Economy. All our classes offering Buddhist teaching are by donation, because we believe that the Buddha's teachings should be freely given. We recommend a donation of £10 / £8 (Conc), but we welcome you however much you can afford to give.
