Weekly schedule

“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

 

A change to the weekly schedule

From 1st December the temple will no longer run its regular Sunday events.

Instead there will be Nembutsu Practice: Saturdays from 9am-10am and Nembutsu Circle Saturdays 6pm – 7pm

* * *

 

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 (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.
