Sunday 25th July | 10am-9pm

Dharma Day is our yearly celebration of the Buddha’s first communication of the way to Enlightenment. The moment that his first teachings hit their mark, the great wheel of the Dharma was set in motion. Today, each time we hear and understand the Buddha’s teachings, that same wheel continues to turn.

With meditation, teaching, reflection and ritual, we’ll spend the day exploring together what it truly means to practice the Dharma, and how our actions can keep...

The Buddha's Social Revolution

In the first weeks after his Enlightenment, the Buddha stayed alone near the Bodhi tree, assimilating his profound discovery and enjoying its bliss. But from the first moment he encountered another human being, the force of his compassion led him to revolt against the social hierarchies of his day. In this impassioned talk at the London Buddhist Centre's 2021 Buddha Day celebrations, Subhuti explores the nature of social conditioning. In doing so, he calls for greater efforts to understand differing experiences and an attempt to relate on the basis of the Buddha's radical vision for humankind.
