“When I speak about the temple to other people I emphasize on how gentle the teachings are, how they encourage you to blossom at your own pace, and how fulfilling being part of the sangha is.” Betty Hughes

These events run every week unless stated otherwise, do just turn up. All our weekly events are suitable for beginners and we also hold some that are especially so – services for First Timers & Dharma talks (details here).

Our nembutsu practice is a mixture of walking and sitting meditation, chanting, prostrations and liturgy and a short Dharma talk – you can read more here but it’s not necessary to know anything in advance, just come along a few times, copy what everyone else is doing, and see how it feels.

Feel free to contact Satya & Kaspa if you have any questions: 01684 572444 or hello@amidamandala.com. Feel free to attend either regularly or every so often.

We’ll begin by reading a few pages from a Dharma book and then people will have an opportunity to share something in response to what they’ve heard or something that is on their minds or in their hearts. There is no need to say anything if you don’t want to. We’ll finish with some nembutsu chanting which you can either join or listen to.

For all our weekly events just turn up or get in touch if you have any questions or if you’d like to double check that we’re meeting.
