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.
The evening will include collective and personal practice, encouraging us to connect with our aspiration to follow the path to awakening, climaxing with a ritual (puja).
For May’s full moon we will be invoking the figure of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, perhaps less well known in the West than our previous transcendental ‘guests’. Through readings and a dedicated puja we will explore and draw inspiration from the great vow made by Ksitigarbha to rescue all sentient beings.
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 7pm (if you want to have a cup of tea beforehand), with the evening starting promptly at 7.30pm.
