Founder’s Day Puja

Friday, August 26th @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

The Ipswich Centre is part of the worldwide Triratna Buddhist Community, and each year we celebrate the legacy of Triratna’s founder, Sangharakshita (1925-2018).

Sangharakshita, who was also known as Bhante, was born in London and his birthday was August 26th. So this is an ideal opportunity to bring him to mind on his birthday and reflect on what he has given us.

We’ll begin with an Introduction, saying something about his life’s work and what it was like to meet him. We will then have a Puja (devotional practice) to take this further.

A special box is brought out and used each year. It has become traditional to take a group photo (optional of course!) and for participants to sign a manuscript book (an enjoyable ritual and a reminder of impermanence as the years go on).

How to join

There is no need to book. Doors open from 7pm.

We make no charge for admission but please remember that the Centre is entirely powered by your generosity.
