Young Buddhists (sub-30s)

Monthly Online Meet-up and Meditation

Friday 11 June 7.00-9.00pm

A monthly online meeting for anyone under 30 who has attended the Birmingham Buddhist Centre or the University Meditation Society.
Hosted by Lucy, Cara, Matty & Friends.

Buddhist Action Month takes place in June every year and is a time to explore the practical ways of responding to some of the difficulties and complexities of the world around us. We will be joined this month by Katja, a mitra in London and a member of XR Buddhists. We will be exploring Buddhist response to the climate emergency, and how her practice influences her activism.

Vajrasattva is a beautiful Buddha figure embodying essential Dharma truths. He symbolises the teaching that we are in possession of enormous riches but don’t realise it. In the morning Karunavajra will give a talk about Vajrasattva and how he can help and inspire us in these times of transition. We will also explore Vajrasattva though art, discussion, puja and mantra.
