Learn to transform your life and the world

Welcome to the Ipswich Buddhist Centre

Our Centre

Whether you are looking for more peace of mind and inner-calm, or you want to pursue an interest in Buddhism, you will find something to help you at our Centre. 

We practice Buddhism suitable for everyone living in the modern world. Our introductory classes are welcoming and informal and no experience is necessary – simply turn up!

Buddhism

Buddhism is a radical viewpoint on ourselves and the world we live in based on love, compassion and wisdom. It enables us to live more satisfying, meaningful lives and to help others to do the same.

The Ipswich Buddhist Centre is part of the worldwide Triratna Buddhist movement.  Founded by an Englishman in 1967. There are now Triratna Centres all over the world.

I've been regularly attending the Ipswich Buddhist Centre for over four years now. I was warmly welcomed from the beginning and now have a huge circle of genuine friends. Everyone is valued on their own individual merit, regardless of differences.
