A weekly opportunity for active dana given in the form of keeping our shrine spaces and centre well maintained, safe, clean and tidy. Join us every week 13:45-16:45 or just when you can. We will start and finish with a short ritual and check-in over a mid-afternoon break. Working together, mindful of each other, in our practice of giving what we can, with an open heart. This is an exploration of team-work and practice and we'd love you to join in. We plan to get greener and so do bring any environmentally friendly cleaning or DIY know-how you might have.
Every year we celebrate the founding of the Triratna Buddhist Order in 1968 by Urgyen Sangharakshita. At the time it was known as the Western Buddhist Order. At the Order's founding a new spiritual movement, called the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order, also came into being. This movement, developed and supported by the Triratna Buddhist Order as an experession of its desire for the happiness of all beings, is now known as the Triratna Buddhist Community.
Glasgow Buddhist Centre is happy to be hosting this years Scotland wide celebrations. Order members are invited to celebrate...

In the morning we will have a guided tour of the great Glasgow Necropolis, looking at notable graves and Victorian death symbology to help us understand our cultural and spiritual beliefs about impermanence. We’ll come back to the GBC for lunch and then spend our afternoon...
