Open Night

Every Tuesday at 7pm is Open Night at Wellington Buddhist Centre. This is a time when anybody can come along no matter what level of experience they have. It is a great introduction to Wellington Buddhist Centre, as well as a chance to contact like-minded people.

The evening usually starts off with a presentation of an aspect of Buddhism or meditation. If you want to stay on we have a tea break followed by meditation and rituals.

Everyone welcome

Suggested donation: $15 (waged) / $10 (low income)


Next Open Night: – The  Symbolism of the Stupa

Tuesday 21 August, 7:00pm – 9:00 pm

“There before the Buddha
A seven-jeweled stupa,
Emerged from the ground
And hovered in the air.”

The stupa is one of the most common of all Buddhist architectural feature. But what are they? Where did they originate from? And what to they symbolise? In this session Don Lawson will look at this important symbol from the White Lotus Sutra.
