"Experiences are preceded by mind, led by mind, produced by mind. Speak and act with a pure mind, and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never departs."

 The Buddhist Centre is run entirely by volunteers and sustained by the generosity of many. Its purpose is to help change the world - to radically transform human consciousness and behaviour. Could you support this vision with a monthly standing order?

 Please be considerate to local residents and park on New Park Road, the car park behind the Spar or by the weir.
