The Edinburgh Theravada Buddhists practice in the Forest Sangha tradition of the venerable Ajahn Chah of Thailand. We are affiliated with the Ratanagiri monastery in Harnham and Amaravati in Hemel Hempstead.
We meet every Thursday evening for meditation and group discussion. All are welcome, whether you're looking for a regular practice or an occasional meditation. We begin the evening with chanting and meditation, followed by group discussion or a dhamma talk.
REGULAR HOURS: 7:30 - 9:30 pm, at Peter and Melanie's place in Edinburgh. Every Thursday, by donation. Please call for address details.
We are pleased to host visiting monastics from Ratanagiri (Harnham) and Amaravati. Monastics from Harnham visit every 1-2 months, typically offering some guidance during the meditation and a dhamma talk afterwards. On Friday morning, dana is offered in the form of a meal at the home of one of our sangha members.
