Sunday 14th January 10:30am - 4:30pm. Led by Srikirti.
An open day for men including meditation, study, a group lunch, and pūjā.
In the morning we will look at a very short sutta called the Paramaṭṭhaka Sutta (it’s only one, longish paragraph) which looks at views. In the afternoon we will look at another short sutta (Upaḍḍha Sutta) which considers briefly the role of spiritual friendship in the spiritual life.
Morning Practice runs before the day, 8:30am - 10am. Join us from then if you can.

* All of our day events run a “bring and share” style lunch, so please bring food to share. All food brought into the centre must be vegetarian, but as many of those attending will be vegan, we suggest vegan only food.
The day will be suitable to all men who are familiar with the two meditations taught at the centre.
We can never have enough of the basics: things like salad, bread, hummus, crisps and fruit always go down well.
No - just turn up!
Of course! Many people who come for half the day will come just for the morning, leaving at lunch time, or the other way around. But you're welcome to come for whatever parts of the day you can make - just try to turn up at one of the times on the programme so we're not in the middle of an activity.
A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting and making offerings.
It is probable that there will be several people who have never done pūjā before so we will be sure to give an introduction.
All of our events are run on a donation basis. There is no set charge, we just ask you to give what you can to support the day. The suggested amount for this event is £12.
