The Liverpool Buddhist Centre is part of the Triratna Buddhist Community ( formerly the FWBO). It is an international Buddhist movement which began in the 1960's in England. It was established by an Englishman Sangharakshita who at that time was a Buddhist monk of over 20 years experience. The movement has since spread to many other countries in Europe, the Americas, to India , Australia and New Zealand.

Sangha evening

Our weekly Sangha evenings continue on each Tuesday. These are devoted to meditation and Buddhist teachings for those with more experience.These evenings start at 7.00pm and finish at 8.45pm.

Our new theme is based on ideas from Maitreyabandhu's book ' The Journey and the Guide'. This uses the frame work of  developing integration, positive emotion, spiritual death, spiritual rebirth and receptivity to develope our practice of Buddhism.

The book is full of practical advice and is very relevant to our digital age of social media and all the pressures this brings.


The Sangha evening is suitable for those with some experience of meditation and Buddhism. Please contact Buddhashanti  or Sumnadipa if you wish to attend the Sangha evening.
