This evening is open to anybody to come along, no matter what level of experience you 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

Next Open Night: – Relationships, Relationships!

Tuesday 23 April, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Presented by Akashagarbha

When you hear the term ‘relationship’ most likely you take it to mean a sexual relationship. And for many people it is certainly their most important relationship, and for some, almost their only relationship. But in fact we are in all sorts of relationships with other people and it is important we maintain these as well to live a fulfilled life.

In an early Buddhist story, called the Sigalovada Sutta, the Buddha outlines what he thinks these relationships are and how we can go about improving them.

You can read the Sigalovada Sutta here.
