I would really like to invite you to an evening of Arts and Culture at the London Buddhist centre 2017. I will be showing my work along with many others from the Community that practice at the London Buddhist Centre.
We will celebrate the arts in the life of the Sangha. The evening will be hosted by Maitreyaraja, Amitajyoti who are two experienced order members who work at the centre.
“Calling all art practitioners, art lovers, people confused by art, people who aren’t sure where it fits into a Buddhist life and everyone else!”
It would be lovely if you can come and experience what the arts mean to people in community that practice at The London Buddhist Centre. The evening will include dance, visual arts, poetry and the launch of the second Triratna Arts Book with over one hundred pages of one hundred Triratna artists from around the world.

Some more information about Triratna and The London Buddhist Centre
The Triratna Buddhist movement is worldwide and was founded by Sangharakshita in 1967. The word Triratna is Sanskrit for ‘Three Jewels’ the Buddha, Dharma (The Buddhas teachings) and the Sangha (the community that follow his teachings).
The Triratna Buddhist order and community consist of those who aspire to follow the Buddha’s teachings in the conditions of the modern world. Being neither monastic nor lay, simply Buddhists at varying stages of commitment to and understanding of the Dharma who practice it to the best of our ability.
At Triratna Buddhist Centres there is a focus on teaching meditation, study the Buddha’s teaching, engagement with the Arts, and engaging in our local communities through projects that bring mindfulness to schools, and evidence based secular mindfulness programmes for various health conditions to name just two.
