Annual Triratna Buddhist Festivals
Each year the Triratna Buddhist community celebrates events that are important in the history of Buddhism and the life of the international Triratna community. They are a way of connecting with our aspirations, to connect with each other and those great practitioners and enlightened beings across the ages. Sometimes small sanghas (communities or groups) will join with larger Sanghas to celebrate. Details of events and specific dates can be found on the Brighton Buddhist centre website. http://www.brightonbuddhistcentre.co.uk
