Full Moon Puja - (In-person)
Full Moon Puja
End the week with an inspiring and welcoming in-person evening of meditation, ritual and storytelling. These events follow the tradition of the Buddhist community gathering together on the night of the Full Moon.
Full moon days are traditionally auspicious in Buddhism. The August full moon is called the Sturgeon Moon, after the pre-historic-looking fish which lived in the great lakes.
The puja will be to Green Tara, the female Bodhisattva who embodies fearless compassion. It will be led by Manjurava on his last evening before he leaves Cambridge to move to Bristol
Puja is a collective and personal practice, encouraging us to connect with our aspiration to follow the path to awakening.
These events take place each month on whichever Friday is closest to the full moon. The event is open to anyone who is familiar with the basics of the Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana meditation practices.
Doors open at 7 pm (if you want to have a cup of tea beforehand), with the evening starting promptly at 7.30 pm.
There is no cost for these events, but please consider giving a donation.
