At the London Buddhist Centre we teach meditation and Buddhism in a way that is relevant to contemporary life as part of the Triratna Buddhist Community. Our centre, situated in Bethnal Green, is currently open each weekday from 10-5pm, and on Saturdays from 10am-3pm. Drop in to look around the centre, or to join a meditation class. We're also continuing to offer a full and varied online programme of events. See our full schedule.
Normally, we host regular retreats at our rural retreat centre, Vajrasana, in Suffolk.
The London Buddhist Centre is a registered charity and runs on generosity. All of our class and retreat leaders are volunteering their time and those who work full-time at the centre are supported according to their needs rather than paid a wage.
We want to move from a culture of exchange to a culture of generosity, providing our activities on a donation basis wherever possible. Do consider supporting us in this transforming work by making a donation at the bottom of this page. Thank you.
As the primary issues of life and death are pressing in on us all, the Buddha’s teachings are all the more potent and necessary for us to hear. We hope you enjoy using LBC Online to engage with our activities from your own home.
We are running a number of classes every weekday, and special events every few weeks. On this site you can see our full schedule, as well as find support and inspiration, and join in with our community.
