Parinirvana Festival Practice Morning

One of the major Buddhist festivals, Parinirvana Day marks the final passing away of the Buddha. It is a time to reflect on the nature of the Buddha and also on our own impermanence and mortality.

This will be a morning of meditation, recitation of the Mahaparinibbana Sutta and puja.

If you wish to place photos of those you know who have died on the shrine, you are very welcome to do so. There will also be an opportunity to remember them during the puja.

Led by Satyamegha and Saccanama

'To Place the Heart Upon' - A Sangha retreat at the Nottingham Buddhist Centre

to Jan 20

'To Place the Heart Upon' - A Sangha retreat at the Nottingham Buddhist Centre

'To place the heart upon' is the literal translation of the term sraddha, more often translated just as faith. It plays a key role in the Buddhist life and suggests an emotional response to what we value, indicating that the Dharma life is not just about learning techniques or changing our perception of the world but a whole-hearted engagement with the Three Jewels.  We will explore what faith really is along with the related emotions of devotion, reverence and gratitude; we will hear some stories about faith from the Buddhist tradition; and we will engage in devotional practices that help to strengthen the faculty of faith within us.

This is a two-day weekend retreat - 10.00 a.m. until 5.00 pm. on both Saturday and Sunday 19/20th January - held at the Buddhist Centre and led by Saccanama.

Please bring vegan food to share for lunch on both days.

This is a dana event, suggested donation of £50.
