Festival

Parinirvana Day Festival
Sunday 15th February
Led by Ambaranta, Kalyanavaca and Vishvantara
When we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings about death it is possible to find and appreciate what is most important to us in life. By exploring experience we begin to see that impermanence makes life possible, without it we cannot breathe. On this Festival Day to mark the death of the Buddha there will be talks, meditation, and reflection on the qualities of the Buddha. Our intention for the day - to take a calm, steady and joyful look at our experience, the relationship between life, death and the impermanent nature of life.
10am-10pm. Bring vegetarian/vegan lunch to share. Check the programme for the day nearer the time. No need to book. With mitra ceremonies.
