The Edinburgh Buddhist Centre
is essentially part of the Triratna Buddhist Community (formerly Friends of the Western Buddhist Order) an international Buddhist movement whose aim is to make the Buddha’s teachings applicable to modern western life. The centre no longer has its own premises. We continue to offer a range of activities, however, operating mainly through the Healthy Life Centre, 35 - 37 Bread St, just off Lothian Rd.
In the coming months we will be running;
- Introductory Meditation Courses
- Introductory Buddhism Courses
- Sangha Evenings for those who have already learned the meditation techniques and have some basic knowledge of Buddhism
To find out more about our forthcoming courses please click on “Classes and Courses,” in the menu.
Our e-mail address will remain the same: email@example.com
