Dharma Day

Sunday, July 21st @ 10:30 am 4:15 pm

This year the Ipswich Sangha will be celebrating Dharma Day with a focus on Milarepa. This 11th century Tibetan had an extraordinary life story. He produced many songs and poems; became a famed meditator and he was a man of wisdom. Urgyen Sangharakshita (Bhante), the founder of our Buddhist Community – Triratna – wrote about Milarepa, and during our Dharma Day celebrations, we will be referring to Bhante’s works and other writings connected with the great Tibetan. We will have a chance to explore these great works and discover their relevance to our own practice today.

Please bring vegan food to share. It’s great if you can come to the whole day, though otherwise join us at a suitable time as indicated below – Love Dayasara
