What we're about

Bodhicharya Kent is under the guidance of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and has been meeting for meditation and reflection evenings at the Quaker Meeting House in Rochester since 2014.

The evening usually consists of meditation sessions, with guidance and instruction.

A related topic is also introduced and discussed. The group is made up of the participants so active engagement, questions, reflections and discussion are welcome, however, if you prefer to just sit back, listen, reflect and take it in that is also very good. There are comfortable chairs and cushions available, but there are no meditation specific cushions so if you have your own and would prefer to sit on it then please bring it along.

We meet every Tuesday, usually 8.00pm – 9:30pm.

Venue

Quaker Meeting House, Northgate, Rochester, Kent, ME1 1LS

Cost

A voluntary donation of £5 (if you can) for the evening to help cover the room rent, tea and biscuits. We value your presence more than your money.

We also have an additional voluntary collection for Rigul Trust, one of Ringu Tulku’s charitable projects. For more information about Rigul Trust please see here: www.rigultrust.org (http://www.rigultrust.org/).

BUDDHIST STUDY, REFLECTION & MEDITATION EVENINGS

IN PERSON AND ONLINE

INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM - First Tuesday of the month

If you are relatively new to meditation and/or interested in finding out more about Buddhism, then this is a good place to start. These evenings will include guided meditations and explore some of the key themes in Buddhism. The general advice for attending these evenings is to come with an open, curious yet sceptical mind and take what you find to be useful and relevant to you in your life.

CONTINUING THE EXPLORATION (all other Tuesdays in term time)

We meet for longer meditation sessions and study a teaching by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche or other teachers. This year we will be following, Path to Buddhahood, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche's commentary on Gampopa's Jewel Ornament of Liberation.

"Gampopa's Jewel Ornament of Liberation is one of the most important texts studied in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. Due to Ringu Tulku's command of the English language and his experience in teaching Westerners, this commentary will surely be helpful to those wishing to understand Buddhist practice and philosophy.

  • Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

It's recommended that you purchase the book to help you follow along, step by step, so that you can get the most out of our exploration of this complete teaching together. However, you are also most welcome to join in when you can, take what makes sense and is useful and meaningful to you and leave aside what is less so.

Other than our regular group facilitator, Cesare (https://bodhicharya-kent.org/group-facilitator/), we also have visiting teachers throughout the year, so please check our website for updates, thank you (https://bodhicharya-kent.org/programme/).
