Would you like to learn more about Tibetan Buddhism and meditation?

We meet twice a month for meditation and talks on Buddhist philosophy at St Mary's Church Broughton (access is down the slope to the right of the church). This is perfect for those new to Buddhism, meditation or seasoned practitioners alike.

Who are we?

We are a small Buddhist charity (SCO number: SC046673) dedicated to promoting the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and practice the teachings of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche.

What do we do?

Every other week, we meet up to discuss the teachings of H.E.Garchen Rinpoche and relate it to the modern world. We always have a different topic each time, and people find it helpful if they know little or nothing about Buddhism. We then engage in seated shamatha (silent) meditation to calm the mind and spirit. After, we will either do a puja (recitation of text in a chant like manner) or chant a mantra, again in a meditation pose. People who attend are welcome to come just for the discussion on Dharma and leave before the practice element, or stay for the whole thing. The sessions last 2 hours in total (7-9pm)

Our next meeting is Wednesday 31st August at 7pm, and this time we are showing the film "For the Benefit of all Beings", which is the story of our teacher, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche. This is in preparation of our lama visiting us in September from Singapore (please contact for details). All meetings are by funded by the kind donations of our attendees, but we never turn anyone away if they are unable to give a little to help our expenses.

Please message with your contact details if you wish to know more, or simply turn up on the day - we always have bags of space!
