7.30 - 9.00 Introduction to Buddhism and Buddhist Meditation.
£4.00 per session (£2 concessions)
Our friendly and informal meetings take place every Tuesday at 7.30pm providing an introduction to Buddhist meditation, teachings and practice. The 90 minute sessions begin with basic meditation (with instruction given if required), followed by a short talk on the Buddha’s teachings and in particular how to apply them to everyday life. The sessions end with time for questions, discussion and refreshments.
For the last 10 years we have been meeting on the University of Exeter campus at St Luke’s Chapel near the centre of town. Meetings are open to all Buddhists and newcomers alike. (We welcome those who are not able to access locally their own Buddhist traditions or teachers but would like to meditate and discuss the teachings with us).
Meditation days, based on the content of Tuesday evening talks, are held twice a year.
The Exeter group was established in 1983 and given the name Sakya Thinley Namgyal Ling by its founders Karma Thinley Rinpoche and Lama Jampa Thaye, who has made numerous visits over the years since it was established. Exeter has also hosted teachings by His Holiness Sakya Trizin, the head of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and Phende Rinpoche.
