Entering into Reality Undistractedly
Inspiration for living from the ‘Tibetan Book of the Dead’

Friday, 19 February 2021 to Sunday, 21 February 2021

A worldwide, online event for all men practising within Triratna.

The men’s Great Gatherings at Padmaloka are an opportunity for us to come together for a weekend in large numbers to immerse ourselves in Buddhist practice. You can go a long way in your practice in the course of just a few days. On this weekend, we will be immersing ourselves in the world of the Tibetan Book of the Dead to discover how we can live more fully and meaningfully in the face of sickness, uncertainty and death.

As well as meditations, pujas and discussion groups, there will be a talk on the theme by Padmavajra, as well as a question and answer session with him.
