Welcome to 2023….we wish you many Tashi Delegs and may this auspicious new year of the Water Rabbit bring blessings to all. A time of renewal and transformation – the first two weeks of the lunar New Year are sometimes called the ‘waxing moon of miracles’ leading to Chotrul Duchen (the Great Occasion of the Buddha’s Performance of Miracles) this is the perfect time to do retreat and make offerings, as the positive effects of actions are greatly multiplied at this time. Join us on Tuesday 21st February at 6.30pm for a very special ‘Shower of Blessings’ Tsok puja to help usher in this new year.
We have plenty of events in this coming year with more still to be confirmed, we will be truly blessed with visits from Drupon Khen Rinpoche, Lama Zangmo, and Ringu Tulku Rinpoche (dates to be confirmed) as well as Clive Holmes and others to come this year – check out our Events page for more information!

A MESSAGE FROM HIS HOLINESS KARMAPA ON THE SITUATION IN UKRAINE 24/02/2022
“When I was in India, people from the Ukraine would come to visit me regularly. I was particularly impressed by their love for peace. They were eagerly seeking how to calm their minds and live compassionately and peacefully without harming others. I consider all these people to be my friends.
I was very saddened and shocked to hear the news today of the conflict in Ukraine. The difficulties and suffering that the people of Ukraine are now facing is unimaginable. My thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.
I ask everyone to join with me in praying for all those involved in this conflict, that this terrible situation may be resolved swiftly, and that peace and harmony may be restored.”
PRAYERS FOR PEACE
EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 6.30PM WE WILL DEDICATE THE PRACTICE OF CHENREZI TO ALL THOSE AFFECTED BY CONFLICT, GENERATING COMPASSION FOR THOSE SUFFERING EVERYWHERE. ALL WELCOME TO JOIN US! NO NEED TO BE BUDDHIST TO ATTEND.
