Sangha night

Sangha night is Edinburgh Buddhist Centre’s weekly study night for regulars. It is held on Tuesday evening from 7.30-9.30pm at the Healthy Life Centre, 35-37 Bread Street.

Sangha night is a chance to deepen your practice and explore Buddhism and meditation through a programme of meditation, ritual and study.

Sangha nights are a combination of both stand alone evenings and themed blocks. Each block will be for 3 or 4 weeks and run by a team of people.  We would like to encourage people to come for the whole block to get the most out of it but if you can’t make all of them feel free to just drop in during these times.

Sangha night classes are run on a donation basis.

Follow us on Facebook or email and ask to join our mailing list for updates on upcoming sangha night activities.

Sept 10 – Verses from the Dhammapada, led by Vidyakara
As a result of last week’s lively discussion on the Dhammapada, we will look at more verses, including 37:
“Far-ranging and lone-faring is the mind, incorporeal and abiding in the cave of the heart.
“Those who bring it under control are freed from the bonds of Mara”.
The evening will start with meditation and conclude by chanting the Shakyamuni mantra.

Sangha night is open to everyone who has some experience of meditating and preferably is familiar with some basic Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble Truths.
