A Warm Welcome awaits at the Triratna Highlands Buddhist Centre

Would you like to find out more about Buddhism? Would you like to try meditation in company with others? Here at the Triratna Highlands Buddhist Centre we offer a number of ways for you to engage.

You could try our Lunchtime Meditation sessions on Tuesdays, 12.30 to 1.30pm. You could call in for a cuppa and a chat at one of our Open Afternoon sessions, also on Tuesdays between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. You could come along to one of our Sangha Night events (Sangha simply means Buddhist community), which run every Thursday, 7pm to 9pm.

For those who want to go deeper, we periodically run a six-week Introduction to Buddhism and Meditation course. And if you want to go deeper still, there is a four-week follow on Buddhism and Meditation Level 2 course.

The Winter Solstice. We will be gathering together on Saturday December 22nd to celebrate the turn of the year; the return of light. All welcome. (See ‘Classes & events/Celebrations’).

Whatever your level of interest, you’d be most welcome. For full details of what is on or coming up, go to Classes & Events and check under Classes, Drop ins, and Sangha Night

Sangharakshita’s Funeral: marking it at the Buddhist Centre Inverness

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing away of Urgyen Sangharakshita (Bhante) on 30 October 2018 at approximately 10.00 a.m. in Hereford Hospital.

We invite you to join us at the Buddhist Centre in Inverness to mark Sangharakshita’s Funeral which will be taking place at Adhisthana on Saturday 10th November between 12.30 pm and 4.30 pm.

We will meet on Saturday 10th November from 11.00 am for an early lunch/brunch together. We hope to have live streaming of the funeral and burial which will include meditation and a specially written Bhante puja that we will join in with. The afternoon will provide an opportunity to share memories, reflect on, and express gratitude for our teacher at this significant time. You may wish to bring offerings. All very welcome.

Please bring veggie lunch/brunch to share and meditation cushions.

Further information is available from thebuddhistcentre.com where there is a dedicated space to Sangharakshita’s memorial page.

Thank you to all who supported us in our 24 Hour meditation time; it was a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed meeting new people and being with each other whether meditating or not. Special thanks to those who came up from Glasgow to join us. The dolphins were totally awesome too; appearing throughout the 24 hours, sometimes too many to count and lots of breaching and play. There was an extraordinary atmosphere at times especially through the night. You can catch Sridakini talking about us on BBC Radio Scotland ‘Sunday Morning With….. on 24/06/18. Her interview begins at about 1:37 x Wishing you all well.
